Star Trek TAS: The Remake

Forgive me if this subject has been broached before. It occurs to me there is an untapped resource for a "new" limited series: A CGI remake of the animated series! Imagine freeing up those priceless original actor voice tracks from the prison of their stiff, motionless Filmation "animation." Modern CGI could provide 22 "new" episodes of original Trek, with realistic depictions of Kirk and crew in their prime, voiced by the original cast. If necessary, I could see these half-hour shows expanded to an hour with additional action footage. Or, hell, hire Walter Koenig and add some Chekov material. Whatta ya think?

I love the original TAS art. The animation's shite, but the planetscapes are beautiful and imaginative.

Put modern CG to work on a new Star Trek cartoon!

I think if there is an animated series, it will be set in the current universe/ continuity. I'm not a massive fan of animated shows but I'd probably watch something in the vein of The Clone Wars, set on the JJ-Enterprise.

Re: Star Trek TAS: The Remake

With Kelley and Doohan dead, "bringing back the original cast" is impossible. I agree with everybody who said to do a new series.

Maybe it's time for a TNG animated series.

Re: Star Trek TAS: The Remake

As tired as I am of the current "Clone Wars" animated series, I cannot argue it's mass appeal and that Star Trek might work well trying such an approach.

Re: Star Trek TAS: The Remake

I'm all for a new animated series. I think it should be based in the JJ-verse, but with a different ship and new crew. They wouldn't get Pine, Quinto, etc...to voice an animated series anyway. They're big stars now.

Just please, no post-24th Century stuff...the tech would be too ridiculously "magic" based on where they'd been going with the TNG and beyond series tech.

Re: Star Trek TAS: The Remake

Couldn't we go in the other direction with it - say, a CGI series set in the Prime Universe about the FIRST five-year mission of NCC-1701? Since George Kirk supposedly became Captain Robert April's XO, you might even get Chris Hemsworth back to voice him.

Re: Star Trek TAS: The Remake

I'm inclined to think an animated series will be set in its own continuity with yet another reinvention of TOS aimed at the prized 6-11 demo. Less like The Clone Wars and more like either Transformers: Prime or Avengers: Earth's Mightest Heroes.

They could always remake TAS with new CGI animation and use the voice tracks from the original TAS.

I really hope we wont see a holodeck ever again.

They just went to great effort to reboot the continuity. They're not gonna turn around and bury themselves in the overly restrictive continuity again. In nuTrek (or another new continuity) they can do anything. On April's Enterprise they'd have all the problems Enterprise faced.

Besides, that Captain April/George Kirk stuff was already covered in the novels "Final Frontier" and "Best Destiny", among others, 30 years ago.

Re: Star Trek TAS: The Remake

A new aesthetic for Star Trek would be interesting. Given that Terra Nova has been cancelled, an animated show possibly would have more success than a live action one.

It would be more worth it to tell new stories rather than Animated TAS, however an idea would be to take the vocals from the 25th Anniversary/Judgment Rites games and mix them in with new audio and animation to create a new series. The gameplay is a constant story with vocal throughout, so creating a narrative shouldn't be too hard, however I think the gameplay is possibly MONO with rubbish MIDI music throughout, so separation might be hard.

I know someone here told me that there is no hope of Secret of Vulcan Fury, however maybe out there the audio tracks at least still exist in a private archive. That would be amazing!

A new series featuring the original cast (albeit via archive material) wold be great for the fnas - maybe fan filmmakers could pick up the idea?! But a new pro series of Kirk and co altogether would almost certainly contain recasts. Could it be JJVerse, Prime Universe or something new altogether.

Outside the classic crew there are other options. Another 23rd century bnch travelling through the stars, JJVerse would be a 'logical' option tying into the current movies.

Wit hthe hype ssurrounding James Cawley's fan series and latterly the current film series, the 24th century has seemed to be almost completely ignored.

Why concentrate on one ship though?! You could have a story arc spanning many ships, stations and planets featuring lots of different characters. The current movie crew probably won't be available for a whole series, but I'm sure a lot of trek vets will be fine for guest spots.

Maybe different timezones could be included not just through time travel - we could have holodecks, flashbacks (a really old character with dark secrets) and even trips to the mirror universe.

The thing is being an animation story arcs would have to be on the light side, and stories would be more action packed, but being Star Trek I'm sure there will be a great idea somewhere

What do you guys think?
