8 September 1973 - 30 August 1975 (including reruns), NBC This Saturday-morning cartoon version of the 1966-1969 science fiction series featured the voices of seven of Star Trek's principals: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelly, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Majel Barrett, and James Doohan. Walter Koenig was replaced by 2 new (alien) bridge crew members. Many of the episodes were sequels to stories originally televised on the prime-time series, by the same writers.
