New Animated Series

I read something a while back about a new animated trek show that was in the works but ended up being shelved for now. Personally, I would love to see a CG animated show similar to the Star Wars: Clone Wars show coming out this year. I don't know a lot about producing TV shows, but obviously TPTB don't want to make a new Star Trek show right now after the failure of Enterprise. However I would assume that doing animation is a lot cheaper and thus less risky than live action. So, assuming clone wars does well, I wonder if TPTB would consider going forward with an animated star trek?

Re: New Animated Series

At this point the only TV-based Trek project that I would have any interest in would be an animated series.

Ditto. As long as they didn't use that god-awful original animated theme song.

Well, I like that theme song a lot. Don't know why people seem to dislike it so much. To me it really sounds like "going boldly where no man has gone before".

BorgusFrat: I'd love to have the old theme you hate so much on ".WAV", ".RAM", or ".MP3" so I can archive it in my files area.

I also like the animated series theme. I've uploaded an mp3 version of the opening and closing versions to my website for you.

Enjoy!

This is the third time now that I've told you to stop pimping your websites.

If you want us to read your fan fiction, post it in the appropriate forum. If you want to plug your website, do it in the Websites forum. You can even link to it in your signature. But stop promoting it every time you post here.

One warning for spamming. PM me if you want to discuss it.

Re: New Animated Series

I'm kind of ambivalent about an animated Trek series. A CGI-one would definitely work nicely and with spaceship shots would be pretty much the same as if it was a live-action series with today's technology.

And, um, I know I'm probably going to stir some st with this, but if there was a 2D series, I'd love to see it as an anime (perhaps something more closer in the line of Robotech than Pokemon) with an unapologetically fanboyish Enterprise. Such a series would only be about 24 half-hour episodes and definitely not be in continuity with anything else. I think it's one way to get younger audiences into Trek in general...

I don;t think an anime Trek is a bad idea. I watched the anime Highlander film recently and loved what they did with it.

Re: New Animated Series

I would settle for a full-out CGI remake of the existing animated series.

I mean, however good the actual storylines of TAS are (and at times, they are good), the actual show itself is typical of early 70's cartoons: Cheap crap.

A CGI remake of TAS would even get to keep the existing voice tracks (and possibly sound effects), so no dialogue would have to be rerecorded. And it could be made to look more like TOS - we have the technology right now to make fully realistic CGI representations of people, although CGI-TAS might not want to be quite *that* realistic.

Re: New Animated Series

Kail & BorgusFrat: Yeah, the ".MP3" you've linked to TrekBBS sound a bit too "kiddie show". I'd like to hear theme songs like this one. Darker, more foreboding.
