Coinciding with the Paramount/Filmation Animated Series, the classic crew received an outing in transfer form, with easily recognisable likenesses of Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner), Commander Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Doctor Leonard 'Bones' McCoy (DeForest Kelly), Lieutenant Commander Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott (James Doohan), Lieutenant Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) and Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu (George Takei).
