Re: Is TAS worth watching in my complete Star Trek marathon?

The problem with TAS is that the animation quality itself is poor. Only the rotoscoped shots (like the enterprise) have any sense of movement to them. The animated lips on static bodies was standard fare at the time, but ever since Gummi Bears (Disney) and Batman:TAS (WB) the bar was raised much higher for television animation.

Also, the music is so repetitive and the tracking so arbitrary that it sometimes comes across like the jukeboxing in Our Gang.

What I'd like to see is to exhume the original voiceovers and do a total redo in CG with a brand new score. Then the decent writing underneath it all would shine better, although you'd still be stuck with the ultra-short runtime.

If it weren't for Jar Jar, Paramount would have just found someone else to revive the franchise. You don't just let Trek sit fallow forever. The idea that he and he alone, of all the creatives in Hollywood, was qualified to revive things is silly.
