^Could you provide an exact quote, please? It's a 90-minute podcast and I'm just asking about one statement. As you've described it, it doesn't make sense. CBS doesn't have some office that defines what is canon. That's the purview of whoever's currently creating new Trek content, which is currently J.J. Abrams and his team. CBS's licensing department makes sure that tie-ins are consistent with canon, but the canon is defined as what's onscreen.
I'd have to go back and listen myself, but he said that it's canon till someone overwrites it on film. Obviously film is always the foundation but that this was meant to give the background and history of the Federation.
