For 45+ years there has been one animated Star Trek series, but soon there will be 3 not to mention the animated Short Treks! This podcast explores the world of animated Star Trek in all its incarnations from the 1970s Star Trek: The Animated Series to the animated comedy Star Trek: Lower Decks and the upcoming young adult focused Star Trek: Prodigy!
Join Aaron Harvey, co-author of Star Trek: The Official Guide to the Animated Series as he and his co-hosts John Cooley, Jessie Gender, and Darren Moser analyze and animated Trek adventures and talk about how they fit into a half-century of Trek history and lore.
It's a Plate!
This week it was like Geek Christmas morning as we all stumbled out out bed bleary eyed and sat down to the computer to open up our Star Trek gifts in the form of two Comic-Con panels hosted by Commander Ransom himself, Jerry O’Connell.
First off we learned more about the world of Star Trek: Prodigy! We heard about the characters, the voice talents and got a teaser trailer showcasing the world and the latest Trek hero ship, the USS Protostar
New Emotion Chip Data!
On Monday there was a 15 second micro-trailer for season 2 of Lower Decks premiering in about a month and then on Wednesday CBS announced that toy company Playmates has been awarded the license for action figures, vehicles, ships, and role play toys for all Star Trek properties! Playmates will launch its new Star Trek toy line in 2022 following the premiere of Star Trek: Prodigy, the first Star Trek series aimed at younger audiences—and yes even more so than the original animated series.
