Star Trek TAS "Beyond the Farthest Star"

Stardate 5521.3 In this first episode of Star Trek TAS "Beyond the Farthest Star" the USS Enterprise 1701 is dragged off course by the negative gravity of a black hole. Black holes are by their very nature, mysterious and Questar M17 is no different. Along the way our heroes discover a wrecked alien spaceship which is over 300 million years old. It makes the Enterprise look tiny. To shed light on their mysterious discovery, the Enterprise boarding party beams over with their "life support belts" switched onto maximum shields which is pretty cool.

Upon investigation, a search reveals no-ones aboard. Spock analysis indicates the dead crew of an insectile race of engineers destroyed themselves but the question is why? Now for the fun bit. Yes, theres an alien life form and its still alive even after all this time!

"You will obey me!"

When the creature beams back to the USS Enterprise 1701 it invades the main computer (much like V'ger did in Star Trek TMP) pushing the bridge crew to the edge. The mind twister here is how to get the alien entity off the Enterprise! Time for a little Captain Trickery to level the score? You decide.

Who said "Its a starship, nothing I've ever seen, look at the size of it!!!"

If haven't seen Star Trek TAS before then you'll likely be taken in by the shows detailed visual imagery. The series won a daytime Emmy award for "Best Children's Series" in 1975.

Slingshot long and prosper, trekkers.

Star Trek TAS Trekfest

Hello everyone! Armchair Squid is running a Star Trek TAS blogfest over at his blog kicking off tomorrow. (I'm sorry about the short notice) So I'm calling upon all star trek fans who love The Animated Series to join us. I think it's only fitting we honor Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan and Lou Scheimer memory by watching the essence heart and soul of these unique animated adventures.

Star Trek The Animated Series is a smashing show, one which was produced by Gene Roddenberry himself, voiced with recordings which were "mailed in" by most of Star Trek's original series cast.

Armchair Squid's TAS Project kicks off with a blurb every Wednesday, starting on March 4th, so lets make it so. We got 22 fun episodes to boldly explore beginning with the first episode, "Beyond the Farthest Star.

 Watch long and prosper.

Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday the 27th February at the age of 83. All over the world tributes have poured in from NASA, Celebrities to Barack Obama.

I never really expected this day to really come. Leonard was universally loved for playing the pointy eared Mr Spock devoted to logic and so much more. He was remarkable and will be sorely missed.

Deforest Kelly's Dr McCoy captured Mr Spock's passing best in Star Trek's Wrath of Khan as you'll remember heres what he said,

McCoy: He's not really dead. As long as we remember him.
