According to Robert Meyer Burnett, who was one of the persons responsible for the new bonus features on last year’s Blu-ray release of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Trek fans can look forward to a Blu-ray release of The Animated Series.
The Animated Series was originally released on DVD in 2006.
“There are plans afoot to bring The Animated Series to Blu-ray,” said Burnett, in an interview with Trekcore.
“I love The Animated Series,” said Burnett, “because to me – despite the very limited animation and some of the lethargy on display from some of the voice acting, and James Doohan doing every other alien voice – there are some great episodes of The Animated Series. Episodes that I really like written by original series writers, whether it’s Yesteryear being case in point; Albatross and Bem, How Sharper than a Serpent’s Tooth and The Counter-Clock Incident and Jihad – there are a lot of really interesting stories there that I think are really legitimate.”
Burnett is already in the process of brainstorming about the project. “I have an idea that would be crazy to pull off, but if we could, it would be really interesting,” he said.
