    Change that CRAPTASTIC music?? it was the same music used in the other animted series (including on tf the "Archie" series) created by the same company. It was HORRIBLE!! WHY couldn't they worked out a deal to use the TOS music for the animated series? It would of made the series more tolerable.

    I think I do miss Chekov to be honest! He should have been in the show even if for a couple of episodes! :sigh:

    I am in the minority and liked what Filmation considering the budget they had and I thought the scripts for the most part were pretty solid. The Filmation documentary on Youtube is a good watch.

    Yes, missing Checkov is tops for me. And I know they couldn't do all of them and I did want some original shows but seeing some "what happened" or "return to" like "Omega Glory", "A Piece of the Action", "The Gamesters of Triskelion" for example.

    Except for “Yesteryear” I didn’t care for the revisit episodes.

    Changing one thing? Hmmm. I like the idea of showing Captain April, but I wish they came up with another story besides "The Counter-Clock Incident" to have him in.

    For the rest of it, it was a Saturday Morning Cartoon from the '70s. TAS was pretty good for what it was. The scene when the huge Tribble is rolling behind Koloth at the episode of "More Trouble, More Tribbles" feels like a little much, but then I think to myself, "What would I think if I were an eight-year-old in 1973?" I'd think it was pretty funny.

    The same with "Spock Twoooo!" I can picture kids thinking "Let's play Star Trek!" and then one of them is "Spock Two". You have to put yourself in that mindset.

    I love that they had an episode like "The Magicks of Megas-Tu" where they touch on the Salem Witch Trials, the Devil, etc. That's an episode that stands out to me even more than "Yesteryear".

    I'd double the budget. That might give them higher quality animation and hopefully more episodes.
