Re: What is "canon?"

Tantrums? What tantrums?
I prefer to view them as wake-up calls...
The main point I was making was that just because a product may claim to be or advertised as "official" does not make it official OR Accurate... Conversely, many "unofficial" products by fans, with limited distribution you could say (because they're not sold nor licensed through a big publisher like Pocket Books) tend to be far better researched, consistent, and plausible extensions of the Trek Universe than the "official" ones...
And even with "official" products--just because they may be condemned Today because they are from defunct publishers or publishers Not Currently Licensed by Paramout--does not make them automatically invalid, as Some fans are quick to condemn them (often out of ignorance).
