Star Trek Animated CGI TV Series [cancelled] Kirk Animation Test
Star Trek Animated CGI TV Series [cancelled] Spock Animation Test * Warning Explicit Language *
Paramount seriously considered making a CGI series based on the Original Series. There were also two video tests from the project that were leaked to the public.
CGI animation uses motion capture:
Star Trek: Secret of Vulcan Fury cancelled 1999 videogame (unreleased from developer Interplay). see the video at 1:25.
The game used motion-capture and voxel technology, priding itself on attention to detail. Developers bragged about getting DeForest Kelley's forehead bump in 3D, as well as the accurate reproduction of Leonard Nimoy's "5 o'clock shadow" on his shaved eyebrows.
Either the above 2 animation tests for CGI or else the Interplay CGI models could be licensed for the Shatner, Nimoy, Kelley characters Kirk, Spock, McCoy.

While Fan-made this cartoon is not CGI but at least made a full episode.
