Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast

Episode 17: The Animated Series

January 10, 2018

The Spocklight crew travel back to the 1970s as we take a look at everyone's least watched iteration of Trek in our continuing mission to analyse the franchise from a non-Trekkie perspective. It's The Animated Series!

As the boys watch series Pilot, 'Beyond the Farthest Star' and the Emmy award winning, 'How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth', Liam ponders how kids would have reacted to the animated equivalent of The Motion Picture, Paul notes how even in cartoon form, Shatner is still stealing the spotlight from his co-stars, while Matt thinks the shortened runtime makes the stories feel like they're 'all mission, all the time'

Misunderstood classic or a series of recycled shots of so called “animation”? Download now to find out!
