Did You Know?

Trivia Gene Roddenberry decided that this animated series was not "canon" (as the live-action series movies are) because he did the series for the money, and he would not have let the writers do some of things they did if he knew Star Trek would return in live-action. However, some of the writers of Star Trek: Enterprise (2001) strongly disagree with Roddenberry's opinion in this matter, and in Drawn to the Final Frontier (2006) they state that they regard this series as a legitimate continuation of the original Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) series. They point out, in those interviews, how they incorporated Trek Universe details from Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973) into the Enterprise prequel. See more »
