Honestly, the canon could still happen. With the notable exception of the destruction of Vulcan.
With all due respect, that is perhaps the craziest most stupid thing i ever heard.... its like saying stalin was a nice guy...... with the exception of purges, murders, secret police, megolomania, historical revisionism......
With all due respect too, allow me to say one thing: riiiiiiiight. Please point me to the logical parallels you can draw from both our statements. Shall I emphasize on the modal auxiliary "COULD". For all we know, V'Ger is still en route to Earth, Khan's sleeper ship is still drifting somewhere, there's still a vineyard belonging to the Picard family in Labarre, and so on...
And kudos to the poster just after you for Godwin'ing this thread!
