An animated series isn't my first choice but it could be excellent a la The Clone Wars and it is far better than nothing. At the very least, it would demonstrate that Star Trek is perfectly viable on TV and keep the franchise alive in that medium. I still think that if Game of Thrones can make it on premium cable - nerdy content at a high price tag - then why couldn't space opera do the same?

The voices can also follow TCW, use the movie actors when feasible - Samuel L. Jackson must be cutting them a deal based on his love of Star Wars - and use voice actors for the rest. I like the guy who dos Obi-Wan better than Ewan McGregor and Anakin is good too although he does sound a bit too surfer-dude-ish at times.
Samuel L. Jackson doesn't do the voice of Mace Windu in the Clone Wars cartoon, its voice actor Terrence C. Carson who does that voice.

If the cartoon series is set in the reboot universe and uses the characters from the movies, they will get professional VAs to do sound alike voices, rather then shell out for Chris Pine to come in every week. If it was a cartoon about say USS Titan, they could get Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis to reprise their roles and have the rest of the cast be professional VAs. If they set a cartoon in the reboot universe, but have it follow a different set of characters, it can have a more affordable voice cast as well.
Don't forget Tim Russ, who broke into voice acting with Sym-Bionic Titan as Solomon Kane.
That is true, I forgot about Tuvok. My point is its easier to get returning actors if its based on the old continuity rather then the rebooted one. Jonathan Frakes costs much less then Chris Pine.
