A perfect accompaniment to the original series.....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Trek: The Animated Series [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoy the animated series and have watched them countless times, having originally purchased them some years a go on VHS.
It would be a mistake to simply dismiss this series as a cartoon, I consider it to be a genuine continuation to the original series, and I personally feel it represents a 'fourth' season.
The picture and sound quality of episodes on the DVD's is excellent, considering they were originally produced in the early to mid seventies, and everything from the menu design to the packaging has been tastefully produced.
The characters are all voiced by the original cast members, apart from Walter Koenig (who did at least write an episode), and many of the stories are written by writers from the original series further adding to the sense of authenticity.
The soundtrack, whilst different, still maintains the feel and atmosphere of the original series.
There appear to be two versions of this series available on Region Two DVD, and the only difference I can see is the packaging (although this does appear to make a considerable difference to the price).
There is an excellent 'making of' documetary included , which really surprised me, that further demonstrated to me the care that was taken when producing this DVD set.
Highly recommeded, and an essential addition to any Star Trek collectors library!
