Star Trek needs to do the same. Another intelligently written TAS (the animation may not have been great in the Filmation series, but the stories were actually quite good. I proudly have TAS in my Trek DVD collection alongside the other tv series and movies) to get the kids interested in the franchise. Hire the new movie cast to do the voices.
Now we're talking turkey.
Can someone transmute this post into a stick that we can beat the bean counters over the head at CBS with?
The day CBS doesn't have the #1 primetime show, #1 prime time line up, #1 comedy, and #1 drama will be the day CBS cares about developing Star Trek for Television.
