I was a fan of Star Trek: The Animated Series, which was produced by Filmation in association with Paramount Television and ran for two seasons from 1973 to 1974 on NBC, airing a total of twenty-two half-hour episodes.

I'm also a fan of the many Star Trek fan films made over the last decade or so. I just discovered a new Star Trek fan film that is animated and it looks like a real labor of love.

NEO f/x (in association with Farragut Films) has released two  episodes of Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes. They are based on the original Star Trek animated series and they have the same look and feel of the original animated series from the 70's.

Here is a synopsis of the first episode:

The Needs of the Many - Stardate 6047.1: The Farragut takes on a special visitor as they return to Cestus III, the site where Kirk and the Gorn fought on stardate 3045.6. As fate would have it, Carter and crew encounter the same rogue Gorn, looking for revenge against the Federation. Time will NOT be on Farragut's side!

The voices are:

John Broughton - Carter
Michael Bednar - Tacket
Holly Bednar - Smithfield
Paul R. Sieber - Prescott
Tonya Bacon - Moretti
Bob McDonough - Galway
Jason LeBlanc - Glenn
Amy McDonough - Holley
Hetoreyn - Taylor
Ralph M. Miller - Computer / Gorn
Chris Doohan - Thelin / Scotty
Chase Masterson - Renata/'Commodore' Johnson/Assistant #2
Vic Mignogna - Shealar/Assistance #1
Tim Russ - Dr. Tumar
