I obtained this boxset some years ago. I enjoyed all the episodes of this animated series, just as much as all the other Star Trek series. This animated series is the forgotten Star Trek series, and should have equal status to the others. This animated series, or most of it anyway, was originally meant to be the 4th season of the original series.
The boxset itself is okay. It could have been made of stronger material. I had something on top of mine, and part of the 'T' in 'The' of 'The Animated Series' came off. I glued it back on. I also found that the white of the boxset gets tarnished to yellow after awhile. It is also a pity that apparently only if this boxset is shipped (sent) to customers in the USA, and maybe from some supplies, is there a cardboard holder at the bottom for it to be inserted in. That's discrimination.

These are the Animated voyages... 14 Aug 2006
By Dave Cordes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
After NBC cancelled the original Star Trek series in 1969 for its second time, it seemed doubtful that the voyages of the Starship Enterprise would resume again until Filmation resurrected the original cast (with the notable exception of Walter Koenig) on September 8, 1973 for the Animated Series. William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelly, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Majel Barrett lent their vocal talents to bring their familiar characters back to the small screen in addition to a few new bridge officers: Lt. Arex, a three-armed and legged alien of the Edo species voiced by James Doohan, and Lt. M'Ress a Caitian cat-woman with Majel Barrett purring her alluring voice. With most of the original crew onboard, the five-year mission would boldly go on for at least 22 more episodes of continuing missions. While it is generally regarded as non-canon among Trekkies (even Gene Rodenberry himself rejected the notion that TAS was canon and even the Stardates are inconsistent with those established in the original series) the animated series still contributed some reverent facts to the legacy of the enduring franchise including the revelation of Captain James T. Kirk's middle name as 'Tiberius' and the establishment of the first holodeck (known as the 'Rec Room') in the episode "The Practical Joker" which would serve as an important narrative device for The Next Generation. Walter Koenig would still contribute to the series as a writer for the episode "The Infinite Vulcan" and alumnus D.C. Fontana would write the stand-out episode "Yesteryear" in which Spock travels through the Guardian of Forever from the highly acclaimed Original Series episode "City on the Edge of Forever" and has to mentor his childhood self as an alienated half-human, half-Vulcan outcast on his home planet Vulcan.

Star Trek: TAS was one of Filmation's finest achievements along with The New Adventures of Flash Gordon and both shows shared the same theatrical quality animation with director Hal Sutherland at the helm of both shows. Despite budgetary constraints requiring some stock shots to be recycled, and occassional continuity errors in animation plates and erratic stories, the series managed to preserve the production design and spirit of the original series quite faithfully. I fondly remember most of all the stock Filmation background music by Jeff Michael and Yvette Blais which was looped throughout the series and recycled in several Filmation productions afterward including Ark II, Space Academy, Jason of Star Command and Tarzan. To this day, I can still hear that incidental music playing in my head after some 30 years and I would hope that someone will eventually release the soundtrack on CD. With the soundtrack being remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1 for the DVD release, it would seem logical that the original unmixed production tracks might possibly still exist for them to release the isolated music score and would serve not just as a piece of forgotten Trek memorabillia to merchandise but also a reference of nostalgic source cues from the Filmation music library (Lou Scheimer, are you listening?).

To coincide with the television broadcast of Star Trek: TAS in 1974, Mego Toy Corporation introduced a successful series of 8-inch action figures and a vinyl U.S.S. Enterprise bridge playset featuring a spinning Transporter chamber to make action figures "dematerialize." Fascinating.

Star Trek: The Animated Series beams onto DVD for the first time on November 21, 2006 and feature all 22 episodes remastered in high definition, 2 featurettes "Drawn to the Final Frontier - The Making of Star Trek: The Animated Series" and "What's the Star Trek Connection?," 3 episode commentaries by writers David Wise and David Gerrold, interviews and commentaries with Filmation producer Lou Scheimer, director Hal Sutherland and writer Dorothy Fontana, photo gallery, text commentary by Michael and Denise Okuda on episodes "Yesteryear" "The Eye of the Beholder" and "The Counter-Clock Incident," stoyboards, wallpaper and AIM icons, and much more!

These are the Animated voyages of the Starship Enterprise:

Season 1 (1973-1974)

101 "Beyond the Farthest Star"
102 "Yesteryear"
103 "One of Our Planets is Missing"

A forgotten piece of Trek history finally gets its due 25 Nov 2006
By A. Gammill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It's been a long time coming, but now Star Trek fans can FINALLY complete their collection of 23rd century adventures of the starship Enterprise. I'm pleased that Paramount didn't take the quick & easy route with this series. There were rumors that this would just be a "bare bones" set, with just the episodes and no extras. But Paramount did the right thing, and has given us a collection that will sit proudly beside the original series DVD collections (even the packaging mirrors those earlier releases).

Of the bonus features, "Drawing the Final Frontier" is really the only one of note. It's a 24-minute documentary on the making of the animated series. One minor complaint: The creators spend way too much time trying to justify the show as "real" Star Trek. This is an age-old, and (in my opinion) ridiculous argument among Trek fans. Gene Roddenberry was involved with the series. It featured almost all the regular cast. It was written by original series veterans, as well as other noteworthy science fiction writers. How could it NOT be considered "real" Trek?

There's a well-intentioned, but brief and poorly designed feature on continuity withing the Trek universe. Trust me, you'll watch it once and probably never again. The same goes for the text-only segment on the show's history. Still, I appreciate that time was taken to create ANY supplemental material for this set.

As for the show itself. . .it's a hard lesson of growing up: Nostalgia ain't what it used to be. BUT, looking at the show from an adult standpoint, it's easy to appreciate the quality writing (most of the time) and the fact that care was taken to be true to the original series. The voice work is all fine, with the versatile James Doohan providing several additional character voices. Sadly, the animation is sub-par, even for an early 70's production. This is particularly apparent in the frequent close-up shots of characters, whose faces barely move.

Still, if you're a Star Trek fan, there's no question that you have to have the animated series. With a little imagination (which we still had to use back in the seventies and is virtually unknown in the age of CGI), you can imagine you're watching a "lost" fourth season of the original series.

Star Trek: TAS Officially Announced For November 21, 2006! 11 Aug 2006
By Servo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Featuring the voices of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelly, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Majel Barrett, and James Doohan, Filmation's animated "Star Trek" boldly continued the voyages of the starship Enterprise and its ongoing mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man had gone before. And did it quite well, actually.

Produced by Filmation founders Norm Prescott and Lou Scheimer, 1973's "Star Trek" captivated Saturday morning viewers every bit as much as the live action series did for primetime viewers. Original series writers D.C. Fontana and David Gerrold wrote several of the episodes while cast member Walter Koenig (Ensign Chekov) wrote the episode "The Infinite Vulcan." Koenig was the only principal cast member to not reprise his role for the animated series.

After years of rumors and delays, Paramount Home Video finally announced that "Star Trek - The Animated Series" will officially release on November 21st! This LONG-AWAITED 4-disc (526 min.) set contains all 22 episodes from the entire series, original Full-Frame (1.33:1) Video, Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, English Mono and Spanish Mono. Special features include: "Drawn to the Final Frontier - The Making of Star Trek: The Animated Series" featurette; "What's the Star Trek Connection?" featurette; Commentary on "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth", "Bem", and "More Tribbles, More Troubles" by writers David Wise and David Gerrold; Interviews; Text Commentaries by Michael Okuda and Denise Okuda ("Yesteryear," "The Eye of the Beholder," "The Counter-Clock Incident"); Photo Gallery; Show History; Wallpaper; AIM Icons.

Awesome Memories Flood Back Watching This Series. 5 Nov 2006
By THE AUTISTIC WEREWOLF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Now I am a born Star Trek Junkie and freely admit my guilt as if I could ever hide it from anyone who knows me. That said the release of Star Trek - The Animated Series is a purely awesome event for my kind. I wondered if we would ever be privledged to see Star Trek - The Animated Series again.

I was beginning to think Star Trek - The Animated Series might be left to rot in some vault somewhere but, oh man now here they are and at a good price considering how Paramount usually charges the stars moon and galaxy as ransom for anything even remotely Star Trek related. Thanks Paramount for releasing these awesome voyages of the Star Ship Enterprise at a reasonable price.

Anyways these Star Trek - The Animated Series episodes with few rare exceptions were excellent sci-fi stories in their own right. The animation in Star Trek - The Animated Series while not first rate easily blows most of the drawings in use on commercial animation TV today right out of the water. Star Trek - The Animated Series while not officially part of the continuing voyages of the shows or movies did add a richness and texture to the TOS TV experience that easily held its own. There were some bad episodes in Star Trek - The Animated Series but far more hits than misses. The music in basic form was true to the original series and the title theme was a slightly and lovingly modified veriation of the Alexander Courage Star Trek Theme.

Star Trek - The Animated Series was free of the budget constraints that live action special effects require because, in animation if it can be drawn it can be made "real" in context of the show. I am a die hard Trek fan as such for me even the so called bad episodes of Star Trek - The Animated Series are good to me, just not great like the others. I am happy to have all the episodes and think anyone who still loves Star Trek will enjoy having these Star Trek - The Animated Series episodes in their collection.

I was in Highschool when these Star Trek - The Animated Series first came on Saturday Mornings in Baltimore, they are one of the joys of my childhood. Seeing Star Trek - The Animated Series again via these DVD's after all these years will be like seeing a long lost family member return home to me well and healthy after being many years too long parted.
