2. No, by my definition, FJ's stuff is more official than ever Because It Actually Appeared On Viewscreens in the feature films! Or did you sleep through V'ger's bridge assault and take-over of the ship's computer?
Not my fault that other writers who followed ignored them...
Nope, very little of those blueprints were seen, only snippets. So the majority of his layouts are not canon. Sorry, if it wasn't on screen, it's not canon. To this day large parts of all of the Enterprises DO NOT EXIST as canon.
This is why I focus on what I call my own "head canon," more than the official canon. I know FJ isn't canon, but some of it makes more sense to me than canon, so when I assemble things in my head, it stays.
