CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment today announce the DVD release date of the highly anticipated Animated Series. Formerly known as The Animated Adventures of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek, the four-disc set will hit stores on November 21, 2006.
The title now shortened to Star Trek: The Animated Series, the set will include all 22 episodes of the classic Roddenberry show, which originally aired on Saturday mornings in 1973-74. A final frontier of sorts, the Animated Series is the last of the Trek catalog to make it to DVD.
I don’t have any of the Star Trek episodes on DVD, yet I’d seriously consider getting this one. Believe it or not, the cartoon series was the first thing I ever recall seeing on TV, which I guess one could say set me on the path of being a Trek fan early. I guess it’s one more thing to add to my Christmas wish list… :-)
