Most of those examples are dreadful. The final one at least doesn't look like cheap department store mannequins. Other than that, there's a ton of 3D porn on the Internet made by amateurs using Poser that's better on a technical level.
CBS/Paramount can easily go on without "success" on the scale that these examples represent, although it's easy to imagine them hankering after the Clone Wars audience instead.
Let me spell it out: if a studio is going to do 3D animation they ought to do it well. The examples you keep throwing out as "gotchas!" are poor examples of 3D animation and utterly fail to make your point.
You're going to tell me that Reboot
-which was on for FOUR
seasons-sucked? That Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles
was crap? The first ones mentioned by me were quite successful and have a big fan base to boot, as does Iron Man: Armoured Adventures
. I can't believe that you think that the Pixar style or the Clone Wars style would be better for Star Trek
over these (although I'm warming up somewhat to the style of animation used in Rise Of The Guardians
for a Star Trek
show based on how well Jack Frost was drawn.)
