Supplemental -- Star Trek: The Animated Series Preview

Welcome back aboard the continuing voyages of "Enterprise Incidents," which officially gets under way with our preview of "Star Trek: The Animated Series." We're excited to be joined for this very special podcast episode by Aaron Harvey and Rich Schepis, authors of the detailed and lavishly-illustrated book "Star Trek: The Official Guide to the Animated Series." Among the many questions that we'll have answered: What were the events that led to the creation of "The Animated Series?" How did the syndication of "The Original Series" and the very first "Star Trek" conventions play a part in that? How did most of the original cast members sign on to reprise their iconic roles? Which producers and writers from "The Original Series" also came back for "The Animated Series?" How did "The Animated Series" grease the rails for "The Motion Picture" and, basically, every other "Star Trek" series that followed? And perhaps the biggest and most loaded question of all: Is "The Animated Series" officially considered part of "Star Trek" canon (and should it be)? Since the early 1970s were such a crucial time period that set the stage for the continued existence and evolution of "Star Trek," this is one episode of "Enterprise Incidents" you won't want to miss!
