Oh, I don't know, if you want to highlight all the good bits don't let me stop you !
Seriously, though, as Justin has mentioned elsewhere Star Fleet was dubbed at a time when the art of dubbing Japanese series was in its infancy. So I think that as a result there are certain elements of the show which do make you raise an eyebrow from time to time.Consequently, whilst the original may have been watertight (and given the Japanese attention to detail, probably was) in adult hindsight we can spot certain issues with it. For example, purely from a scientific point of view, the idea of having a base on Jupiter is a non-starter, as is X-Bomber surviving a fall into a Black Hole and then zooming around inside one until it finds a way out! That obviously has nothing to do with dubbing, that's just because it's done for fun. Having an asteroid belt just beyond Mars is actually accurate. In my version, as far as possible, the astronomical facts are correct (e.g. the timing of the return of Halley's comet). I knew I wouldn't get away with that sort of thing with adults reading Genesis!If you actually look at Star Fleet in the context of the genre it comes from, anime, it's actually pretty restrained, but it's something to be conscious of when you're considering the way things play out - and of course the dubbing adds another layer of mystery to what's going on! What might be interesting is a subtitled version of the show done in modern times when translation is now a more practised art - someone could probably do that from the soon-to-be-released Japanese DVD (or indeed the older laserdisc) but it'd be a big commitment - more than subtitling a single film for example...One thing I've found is that people often comment on how the cartoons of today aren't as good as the cartoons of yesterday. I wonder how much of that is down to perceptions changing over time. I do think that the dub of Star Fleet was quite sophisticated in the language it used; that and the combination of puppetry probably makes the show feel more "real" for a lot of people. I think some modern kids shows do work as well - Reboot was very good, it worked on a lot of levels. Anyway, I think I'm rambling, so I shall stop now!
