Filmation produced an animated Star Trek series shortly after the original show went off the air. Most of the original series writers and cast returned for the animated version.  Star Trek won an Emmy in 1973 for Best Children’s Programming, the first and only for Filmation.  Lt. Chekov was not featured in the series, since the actor Walter Koenig did not join the others.  He was replaced by two new alien characters, Lt. Arex and Lt. M'Ress.  Although, Koeing did write an episode of the animated series.
