Like it or not, "canon" is a very important part of Star Trek. Why would I care for an episode or a movie, when everything that happened there will be ignored in the next episode/movie? Of course there have been some continuity errors over the years. But considering the amount of screentime Star Trek had, that's understandable.
Star Trek has a relatively tight continuity, and that makes it a lot more interesting!
Problem is that you have too many people who think Star Trek
is about nothing but canon.
Is continuity important? To a degree, yes. But the first thing I worry about is whether a story entertains me or not, not whether it lines up with other stories from other creators.
