Trivia

Originally, the series was not going to include George Takei, Walter Koenig, and Nichelle Nichols due to budget considerations. However, when Leonard Nimoy learned about this, he refused to join the cast unless his friends were included. Rather than lose the most popular cast member, Filmation agreed to sign on Takei and Nichols. While Koenig could not be included because of the budget, he provided the script for Star Trek: The Animated Series: The Infinite Vulcan (1973). 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: The Original Series, her uniform was unique in that she wore a red cross in place of that symbol. See more »

The forgotten series
16 March 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

In between the time of the original Star Trek series' cancellation by NBC and Star Trek: The Motion Picture's release date, Star Trek was growing in popular at a fast pace. One can assume the purpose of this show's existence was to cash in on Star Trek's popularity. Well maybe that's why NBC ran it, but the people behind appreciated the Original Series and it showed. This series had some interesting stories, but suffered a major setback from day one. Being animated and aimed at little children, this series wasn't able to do the kind of stories the Original Series and the following series were able to. The show was not cheaply done. Animation was excellent, with all the characters looking like the actors themselves. The series probably could have succeeded in prime time. Catch the reruns where ever you can.
