The Animated STAR TREK series had one significant advantage over its
live action precursor, that of being able to inexpensively show any ship or device that the series
art director imagined. It is common knowledge that special effects such as making spaceships fly or
space phenomenons pulsate, are terribly expensive to do in a live action series. The animated
series was able to show a great number of technological items that would have
been cost prohibitave to attempt in live action. The original series encompassed some 80 hours
of programs and showed about a dozen spaceships. The animated series spanned only 11 hours and
brought a whopping 30 spaceships and vehicles (including some dozen ships seen in the "The Time
Trap") into the Star Trek universe.
