    Another Trek Fan Collective is coming out...Klingons. Thats great an all. But, how about releasing something that hasn't been. I am speaking of the Animated series. I know it was supposed to be on the schedule and then pulled. And if thats not an option. How about releasing some of your other popular shows cough*Untouchables*cough??

    I am also waiting for the Animated Series to arrive on DVD. I wish it would hurry up already.

    The Sets are nice for the casual fan but I agree they ned to release the animated series and then move onto stuff that should be out, I Know the Odd Couple is coming, but paramount has alot of other stuff pending, How about more Happy Days, Mission Impossible, etc

    I have absolutely no use for the fan collective sets as I have all of the Star Trek series sets in my collection- that is, all except one.[​IMG] Does Paramount really like pissing-off fans by holding out on the release of the animated series? I'm starting to feel like a rabbit with a carrot dangling in front of me - only to have said carrot taken away.

    Enough with the fan collectives.....release the animated series already!!!!![​IMG]

    I'd never thought I'd see the Planet Of The Apes cartoon on DVD ever and yet it's out before Star Trek Animated. Something is wrong over there at Paramount.

    Does anyone have a listing of the episodes for the Klingon set?

    I agree that the animated show needs to be released, but recent news would suggest that Paramount is trying to get it released but there are matters out of its control.

    I'd also like to see the 25th anniversary special hosted by Shatner and Nimoy make it to DVD. It was the finest documentary ever made on Trek, IMO, and I'd like to have it on DVD.

    My bet is that there wont be any new commentaries on the Klingon set, just the same old one on Broken Bow.

    Paramount needs money obviously if they are doing more sets like this.

    The animated series have aged terribly.

    "The animated series have aged terribly"

    20 years ago, I was watching this series on some cable channel, and it was bad back then! My room-mate and I (both Trek fans) would make fun of the show, mocking the music, animation and so on.

    And y'know what? We still loved it. I would still buy this in a second.

    The Digital Bits says its still coming. Of course i think it is the BEST cartoon from the the 70s despite its flaws.

    Well, it did have much better writers than most animated shows of its time, and the voice talents of the original cast are always a pleasure to hear. I like the design of the characters and the animation, although the stillness of the animation (which was Filmation's style at the time) is what most people criticize. Here's hoping The Bits is right! Extras or no, it will be great to have the series on DVD.
