Not only is today the 45th anniversary of the debut of Star Trek on TV screens, it is also the 38th anniversary of the lesser-known Star Trek The Animated Series. The live-action Star Trek ran regularly in reruns throughout the 70s and I was a regular viewer. The animated series wasn’t on quite as much but I did manage to catch it now and again.
22 episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series were produced and they featured voices by the original cast (minus Walter Koenig’s Chekov.) The show first ran from September 8, 1973 to October 12, 1974. Enjoy the intro below.
