This morning I watched the first episode of TAS ("Beyond the Farthest Star
"). It wasn't all that bad, however, the hokiness factor was kinda high, therefore, I personally could not consider much, if anything, as "canon."
The animation was clean but very limited. And while the animated form allowed for an unrestrained imagination, it also untethered it from being relatable, realistic, grounded science-fiction.
It did serve to reinforce my opinion that ultimately it is more curio than relevant must-see "Star Trek."
