    Happy Birthday to Star Trek TAS that also premiered this day forty years ago.

    Whatever reservations I might have about TAS there is still a lot of cool stuff in it.

    The first episode I recall seeing was "Beyond The Farthest Star." Back then at the age of 14 it blew me away. It was everything I hoped to see in new Star Trek. Ot was soon followed by another standout episode, "Yesteryear." And other of episodes still stand out (for me): "Jihad," "Pirates Of Orion," "Slaver Weapon" and "Albatross."

    An excellent animated series. :techman: Especially for it's time. I also agree with your list of standout episodes. I still watch the series once or twice a year from my DVD set.

    Forgot that TAS premiered on the same date and that it was 40 years ago today.

    So forgive the rushed nature of this acknowledgement.

    The fine line between continuity and fanwank.
    Neat, I didn't realize. I enjoy TAS. Pretty good cartoon, especially for the 70s, especially considering that Filmation was known for its economical practices.

    Thanks! Poser/DAZ based art is usually a community based effort unless the person is skilled enough to build, texture and rig all their own material in other programs. So I try to give credit where it is due.

    Sincerely,

    I love TAS! It has its share of stinkers and production limitations, but what Trek series doesn't?

    Happy 40th!
