Trivia

Between Star Trek (1966), Star Trek (1973) (this series) and the six original series Star Trek movies, the Season One episode Star Trek: The Slaver Weapon (1973) is the only time after his character was first introduced that William Shatner (Captain James T. Kirk) does not appear. He also did not appear in Star Trek: The Cage (1986) (1966), the legendary original series pilot. See more »

Goofs

Nurse Chapel's chest insignia is the standard oval-within-a-circle symbol for the Sciences division. However, in the live Star Trek, her uniform was unique in that she wore a red cross in place of that symbol. See more »

Many fans have looked negatively on this series. That is too bad, and they do not give it the attention and credit it fully deserves. Sure there is an episode or two that was simply okay, but overall, I enjoyed all of it.

Gene Roddenberry, the creator of "Star Trek", was paid money for this series. He said that it was not part of "official" Star Trek. I think that is ridiculous, since he had the final approval of all of the scripts, and there were some great ones.

If anyone faulted the animation of this show, it must be remembered of what the state of animated films was in 1973. Even Disney had cut back considerably by that time; look at Disney's "Robin Hood" to see what I mean.

Because "Star Trek - The Animated Series" had a limited budget, there was not enough money to bring back Walter Koenig to play Chekov. But the show is a fine example of how "Trek" could work in animation.

And that is its finest accomplishment of all.
