Critic Reviews for Star Trek: The Animated Series Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

Some of the franchise's most memorable moments have dealt with Spock's Vulcan upbringing... Star Trek: The Animated Series did this, too - especially in Yesteryear.

This stricken-from-continuity, barely animated, too-poor-to-hire-Chekov show, is probably best enjoyed when you didn't have to pay for it.

Star Trek is us at our most curious, most tolerant, and most together, and for a show aimed at a Saturday morning kids crowd, The Animated Series gives us all we could hope for.

The pacing is similar to TOS - which means a lot of pregnant pauses, and not just from [William] Shatner, who reprises his role as Captain. But condensed to a 30-minute show, the episodes often flow much more smoothly than on TOS.

Despite wonky animation and trippy colours, these 22 bitesize Treks pushed the boundaries with stories about a species of mer-people and a universe where time runs backwards.

Apparently, the universe just wants to see as many Spocks as possible.

In retrospect this stilted, handmade approach is suffused with a goofy charm, much like that found in the crude action of a Peanuts holiday special.

TAS still feels even stiffer and more self-important than Trek, hard as that may be to believe. But it also feels more thoughtful, and less beholden to the prime-time need for scantily clad space chicks and two-fisted action.

It feels like classic Trek. And if you've never seen it, it literally is like discovering that all this time, there was a fourth season you didn't know about.

Star Trek: The Animated Series is awesome.
