This was the first Saturday morning animated series by Filmation broadcast by NBC. The network had always refused to buy any cartoons by Filmation previously, but when Star Trek premiered Filmation finally had different shows on all three major networks on at the same time. See more »


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 »

What a great return!
28 December 2006 | by dat_cali_boi05See all my reviews

People say that Star Trek had no life between 1969 and 1979, boy are they wrong! In the early 1970's Star Trek was very much alive, in the form of animation! The stories told in this series are absolutely amazing and fun and seeing the crew we're come to love and cherish in cartoon form is what makes it all the better! The missions are more detailed, and all your favorite characters are there! I recommend anyone -- even non-Star Trek fans -- to check this series out, you will be blown away at the adventure and imagination these episodes have to offer.

When I first heard of the cartoon, I thought it was going to be lame, but after watching it, man was I wrong! Given the fact that the live-action series had budget setbacks, the animated series gave Roddenberry the power to present Star Trek in a way that more fitted his dream. I just got the entire DVD set for Christmas and I can't put it down! The episodes are just amazing and I love them! Long live Star Trek: The Animated Series!
