Trivia

Because this animated series was deemed to be aimed at children, many of the darker elements in the scripts had to be excised, to the chagrin of Gene Roddenberry and other writers. This led to the "Star Trek lite" accusations against this series by disappointed fans of the live Star Trek (1966). See more »

Goofs

Uhura's insignia is mistakenly the Life Sciences globe. It should be the geometric emblem of Ship's Services. See more »

A brilliant series lost in time
19 March 2006 | by pepe-121See all my reviews

This is like some lost series of Star Trek.

Carrying on from the fourth year of their five year mission this is 22 more episodes with Kirk and crew. Some episodes serve as excellent sequels to original episodes, others are absolute gems of creativity in their own right.

There is a real passion behind this series. Everything from the creative writing to the efforts put in by James Doohan doing several voices at once really gives this show it's charm.

Officially it's not part of the Star Trek time-line but that aside it does have key Star Trek elements shown for the first time.

Much like how we appreciate The Original Series today with its low-grade effects (by todays standards) - you can appreciate it for its creative value, effort and shear brilliance.
