Trek animated series

I don't care if it's set on a ship, space station, or Starfleet Academy. It could be during the Earth/Romulan War, Dominion War or peaceful exploration. It can be the prime timeline or the Abrams timeline. What matters is there has to be SOMETHING to keep Trek in the public eye. With Marvel cranking out a superhero movie or two every year and Lucasfilm making new Star Wars movies (both proper episodes and solo character films), Paramount had better do something. An animated series is a good start. What do you all think?

Re: Trek animated series

If it's good, I'll watch it. I have no idea what is coming after this 3rd NuTrek movie is done. I don't know who will be running it, or what they will want to do with it. I do think that Trek will come back to TV someday. No predictions as to when. Anything seems possible right now. There are LOTS of possibilities in terms of the setting. Different timelines and centuries to choose from, no matter if it's animated or live action.

Re: Trek animated series

This is what I'd like to see. A new Kirk/Spock series with animation on the same level as Batman: the Animated Series -- stylized, but still pretty naturalistic. Imaginative storylines. It would be the good reboot I'd hoped to get with ST09.

Re: Trek animated series

I would love to see an animated series, but I think that's up to CBS, not Paramount, isn't it?

Re: Trek animated series

I started to read your post, blockaderunner, and -forgive me- I could not help but hear some Seuss in the request:

It can take place on a base
Or on a ship way out in space!

It can take place in a war
Or on a mission to explore!

In the Universe called 'Prime'
Or in the J.J. Line of Time!

Powers That Be, clear the deck!
Give us some animated Trek!


I, too, would like to see some good, quality animated Trek stories produced. Given what the success competing franchises have had (when they go for quality), I am surprised that no project has been been proposed and green-lighted.

Re: Trek animated series

Star Trek: Titan seems like a no-brainer to me. Has pedigree, brings along all the TNG fans, goes back to the original Trek premise. Just do it, I say.

Just don't, I say. No more Berman-Trek, please. Let's leave that stuff to fan films and fan fiction. It's time to move on.

Right now I'd rather see someone update the visuals for TAS we have.

Shoot, I'd watch a Supermarionation Trek, but then that just makes 2 of us.

Re: Trek animated series

I'd love to see a full-out CGI remake of the original animated series. You could even keep the existing voice tracks.

Don't believe me? Check this out.

Re: Trek animated series

If they're gonna go to the trouble of animating a series, why not do new stories?

Re: Trek animated series

I think an animated Star Trek series is exactly the way to go, and have said as much elsewhere.
You could do any series' crew, at any time period - and as far as the voices; certainly there are any number of voice actors available to do very good impressions of our favorite crewmembers!
You could have a rotating series, new TOS episodes one week, TNG the next week, then DS9, and so on. Everyone gets something of their favorite.

FOUR! Such a series would suit Star Trek down to the ground

Re: Trek animated series

I've posted here before a CG test I did of how an animated series set in the JJverse could look. Now just to shamelessly show off, here's a second one I did. Excuse the Lack of Spock:
