Serves everyone right who ever slammed Trek novels with, "...at least Star Wars novels are canon!"
At the same time post-Nemesis Star Trek is a free for all that will almost certainly never be contradicted by future canon.
I'm actually quite curious how the Primeline novels will react to Into Darkness
. Will future novelverse depictions of Earth and Qo'nos incorporate stuff from the new movie versions? Especially with regard to future Earth - of which we canonically know so little.
