Star Trek: The Animated Series

Sometimes known as TAS, Star Trek the Animated Series debuted on NBC, Sat. Sept. 8, 1973. This cartoon version of the Original Series by creator Gene Roddenberry featured almost all of the voices of the cast of that series. Many of the storylines are the same whilst others are brand new stories not previously shown in The Original Series.

    Originally the show was not going to include Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, and Walter Koenig 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 Nichols and Takei. While Koenig could not be included because of the budget, he provided the script for "Star Trek" (1973) {The Infinite Vulcan (#1.7)}.

    The life-support belts came about simply because the bulky spacesuits created for Star Trek: The Original Series were too complex to draw. (In the Original Series, the concept of the transporter had come about the same way: it got the crew to the planet without the expense of filming a landing sequence every week.) Ironically, the belts were never adapted for the later live-action movies and TV series because making the actors "glow" via special effects would have cost more than making spacesuits!
