Re: Do we take "fanon" too literally?
I was trying to think of examples of 'fanon' that were so all encompassing that people accepted them as fact even though they had never been stated as such on screen.
I can't think of anything in Star Trek, but a good example would be the slayer line running through Faith rather than Buffy after her first death.
"Who are you?! And how did you get in here?!"
"I'm the locksmith. And... I'm the locksmith."
