The Final Frontier
Star Trek: The Animated Series was basically the same as the original live-action television show except for the fact that it was a cartoon. It was interesting in that it often produced sequels to episodes of the live-action show. It also incorporated the original actors from the show to do the voices of their animated incarnations.
Unfortunately, when it originally aired, TAS was doomed to failure. The show would have had a great deal of appeal to adults if it aired in a prime-time line up. Instead it was relegated to Saturday morning line up, and thus went over the heads of many of the kids who watched.
TAS is sometimes known as "the forgotten Star Trek," which really is tragic, because it was indeed a great show.
