New Star Trek Animated

New Star Trek Animated. It was a strange experiment in bringing more adult-themed adventure programming in the animated world. You might assume it was the result of someone who didn’t understand Star Trek or someone thinking that it was kids stuff. The new one is supposed to be a real version of the show.

The new Star Trek animated takes a trip into the universe. Paramount’s Star Trek team is taking its sweet time about getting another movie done. The series hasn’t been on television since Enterprise was cancelled exactly six years ago.

The answer to the Star Trek drought could be the same as it was back in the seventies: Paramount has been talking about making a new Star Trek animated series. Responding to a tweet from TrekMovie, Star Trek writer Bob Orci revealed on his twitter feed tonight that he has been talking about putting together an animated Trek. Just exactly who he has been talking to about this remains a little unclear. Based on the context of the conversation it’s either something he has been mulling over with his Star Trek co-writer Alex Kurtzman, or it’s something he and Alex have actually been talking about with Trek rights-holders Paramount and CBS. Either way, I like the thought process.

Bottom line, even if they actually do get around to making another movie, Star Trek really needs to get back on television. Live action hasn’t really worked, but animation could. Here’s the best thing about doing animation: They could actually set the thing in the original series, in the same way the 1973 animated series was. Maybe even draw the characters to look like the original actors who portrayed them. Give me William Shatner’s young Kirk. Spock should always be played by Leonard Nimoy. Resurrect DeForest Kelly and James Doohan to play Dr. McCoy and Scotty in animated form. Let those characters live on forever.
