Star Trek animated beginning

When this cartoon debuted, it was a godsend to us Trekkies. We had seen every episode at least three times. Many episodes even more than that. So here we got weekly episodes of all new adventures for two years. It was only 22 episodes, but it was really cool to see most of the original cast back, plus new alien crew members. There were a few sequel episodes to the live action series and loads of interesting ideas.

The animation was pretty limited, which was pretty standard for Filmation for years. It looks gorgeous as always. The acting is all pretty good, though sometimes the cast sounds pretty bland. Still, it delivered the Trek sci-fi adventure we craved back then.
