    Hang on a sec. No, there's nothing in my eye....

    That's utterly brilliant. So much going on.

    This might well deserve discussion in the Fan Films forum.

    An absolutely excellent piece. The attention to detail is quite amazing. So many "beloved" aspects of TAS on display here. :D

    Ha this is fun. The stilted poses, the constant re-use of animation. The camera angles chosen to show as little animation as possible. The purple used in the Borg Cube/Uniforms is also a nice touch.
    And the best thing is how the Borg Cube "at warp speed" very slowly slides off camera.

    I hope they'll make more though, I really want to see Troi in this style haha.

    Brilliantly done. I love how they matched to controls to TAS.

    What really sells it is how they even mimicked the forgetfulness; such as the open turbolift door.

    Some more about the film:

    https://heavy.com/entertainment/star-trek/the-next-generation-filmation-animation-style/

    It WAS the 1970's. :lol:

    This is better than Filmation (they've done away with a lot of Filmation's cost-cutting shortcuts).

    That is basically perfect. They've absolutely nailed all of it, even the purple Borg Cube.

    This makes me wonder... why hasn't a NG animated series set after NEM been put on the table. Did that story drive all the characters away from the Ent and each other. There has to be something more to tell there.

    Someone needs to make this happen as an actual show while the TNG cast is still with us. Make it so!

    Great fun! The only suggestion I have is that com badge/insignia on the chest should be bigger, which is TAS style.

    The pink Borg cube made me laugh out loud. Loved it.

    This is great.
    If there was one, which I'm not sure there was, t could be like the Buffy animated series, in that it was too expensive for the smaller networks and zero interest from the bigger ones.
