Star Trek: The Cartoon Series, abbreviated The Cartoon Series or TCS, is a fan series by CaptFredricks, acted out between 19 August and 16 December 2007. It consists of four episodes within a single season.
The Cartoon Series was not filmed and no episode scripts exist. The only documentation of the series is a few handwritten notes containing episode titles and descriptions. A list of all of the series' characters was lost at some point before being documented on this wiki, therefore, only characters appearing in episode descriptions are listed here.
The Cartoon Series takes place in the mid 2350s and covers the events of Jean-Luc Picard's time spent as captain of the USS Stargazer. The story begins with him as first officer under Captain Harry, who leaves for another command. Picard then takes command of the Stargazer, beginning his long and memorable Starfleet career.[a]

Background and trivia
- The Cartoon Series was originally planned for January 2007, but it was later changed to August of that year.
Notes and references
- This creates a continuity error with canon, as Picard had been captain of the Stargazer since well before the 2350s.
