This week's pick of the week is STAR TREK: THE ANIMATED SERIES. Some of you may think that this is just Saturday morning kiddy stuff, but believe me, the stories are just as entertaining as what you saw on the original series. The show even featured the voices of original castmembers William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, James Doohan, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, and Majel Barrett.
