Re: The Hall of Forgotten Fanac: The James Dixon Collection

It's summed up nicely in DakotaSmith's OP link. He wrote an amazingly detailed Trek chronology, but was absolutely unable to cope when subsequent Powers That Be chose to disregard many of the assumptions made in the first-generation technical manuals, booklets and unlicenced technical fanzines. He took it all very personally.


One more James Dixon sighting. Look for two posts by JTD near and at the very bottom. In his chronology and rants, he held up the Star Wars Expanded Universe as the ultimate example of a mammoth continuity which built upon the old instead of overwriting/ignoring it. Now JJ Abrams has come along and the SW EU looks likely to be ignored by Star Wars Episode VII...
