Tv Season Info
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.
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.
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.
