This animated series continues the adventures of the USS Enterprise, taking advantage of the visual freedom of animation to present stories with more alien elements. Written by

Several of the Original Series' "guest actors" reprised their characters as voice roles in the Animated Series: Stanley Adams as "Cyrano Jones" in "More Tribbles, More Troubles"; Roger C. Carmel as "Harry Mudd" in "Mudd's Passion"; and Mark Lenard as "Sarek" in "Yesteryear". (In that same episode, the returning character "Amanda", originally played by Jane Wyatt, was voiced by Majel Barrett.) See more »
Well, I really must disagree with the Late Great Bird of the Galaxy (*). He said that this series should not be canon, but I think it should.
The stories were good, including many of the original writers, and even a story by Hugo/Nebula award winner, Larry Niven. The animation was - well - let's say Disney animation tastes like a fine, high quality, Austrian cake, and ST's animation tastes like cardboard.
If you are a ST-TOS fan, well, get every single episode here.
If you are a ST-TNG+ fan, try one out, preferably Yesteryear, or More Tribbles, and then decide if you want to see more. There are some silly ones.
