OK, if you made it this far then you probably know that ST:TAS stands for Star Trek: The Animated Series. Paramount has finally
confirmed a November 21st street date for this long-awaited series. All 22 episodes will be included in the four-disc set. No official word on extras as of yet, but there are strong rumors of "commentaries from the priciple cast members and writers" floating around.
Creator Gene Roddenberry's animated version of Star Trek features the voices of nearly the entire cast of the original live-action series, including William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, George Takei, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols and Majel Barrett, as they embark on the further adventures of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Comprised of 22 episodes, the four-disc set includes the Peabody award-winning episode "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth,” Walter Koenig's "The Infinite Vulcan,” which was the first episode ever written by a Star Trek cast member, as well as a number of episodes that serve as sequels to original Star Trek episodes. Many episodes were written by veterans of the original live-action TV series, such as D.C. Fontana and David Gerrold, and the show won a daytime Emmy in 1975 for Outstanding Children's Series.
Confirmed special features for the Animated Series include:
"Drawn to the Final Frontier - The Making of Star Trek: The Animated Series"
"What's the Star Trek Connection?"
