New TAS?

In other threads there's discussion of reanimating TAS and how some would like it done.

Setting that aside do you think there could be interest is animated Trek films similar to the DCAU direct-to-dvd films? I think this could be interesting and likely more affordable than mounting an expensive live-action production every few years. It could also be away of getting back to the prime universe/continuity if desired. Besides which I have zero interest in seeing the Abramsverse in any form whatsoever.

These animated features could be wholly fresh stories or even include adaptations of comics and/or novels.

Any thoughts?

I'd be interested if it was done "right". But wasn't one planned a few years back, with the premise of a post apocalyptic federation, and set aboard a hammer-headed enterprise that was way worse than the JJ-prise? If that's the best we can expect, then I'll pass.

I don't recall hearing of an animated feature being discussed or in the works. And, yes, if it was anything like what you've described then I wouldn't have interest in it either.

That's what was planned. There are storyboards, art and a script to see.

A new Star Trek cartoon done now would be mindless kiddie stuff based loosely on the new films (see: Iron Man cartoon).

CBS and Paramount regard straight-to-DVD movies as cheap and nasty (which is a shame). They won't want their profitable (again) Star Trek franchise anywhere near them.

Honestly, considering how obsessive many of the TOS fans here are, I doubt there would be any love for a Prime universe Trek cartoon no matter what form it took.

I think you're being overly cynical. It will never be what it once was, but it could still be entertaining. And seeing how the DCAU films are generally done I don't think it's a given that it would be dumbed down schlock just for kids.

And it needn't be strictly TOS although that might be the focus. They could be the Pike era or the TMP/film era or even TNG/DS9 era.

An animated Titan series would be great. Lots of cool new aliens and Frakes & Sirtis to boot. I'd watch it.

Re: New TAS?

I think the old Filmation version holds a special place in the hearts of those who were of "cartoon watching age" at the time.

Farragut is doing a great job with their series but I find them to be a bit too expository, rather than letting the animation tell the story.

On the plus side I think I look good TAS'd

Re: New TAS?

I'd want a better style than the original TAS from Filmation. It was fine for its time, but now I find it flat and too static.

How about the wooden puppet look of Clone Wars?

I'm not sure. Might work. I will say that it doesn't look bad and that Clone Wars is far better than the live-action SW films.

Yes! I think this would easily be the best option for more Trek on TV.

I would keep expecting them to sing the Lonely Goat Herd song from Sound of Music.

Re: New TAS?

I think doing a reanimated TAS would be a good way to test the waters for something like a new animated series.
