Final Frontier: The Animated Series.
As fans wait for a new TV series to appear, few know that we came very close to an animated one appearing online just before the J.J. Abrams reboot began. Three veterans of Star Trek production formed a studio called Zero Room and began developing an animated show called "Final Frontier." In this episode of The Ready Room we're joined by Dave Rossi, Doug Mirabello, and Jose Munoz to discuss the animated series they pitched to CBS and that came close to being picked up by StarTrek.com.
In our news segment we talk about Jonathan Frakes appearance on the Twitter stage, a 3D chocolate printer for Troi, Star Trek on Netflix, the possibility of Brent Spiner appearing in the next J.J. Abrams Star Trek film, Roberto Orci's thoughts on the Star Trek game-film connection, Star Wars vs. Star Trek, Star Trek Online and Steam, Shatner and NASA’s Shuttle documentary, the Tricorder X-Prize, and Ira Steven Behr talking DS9.
