Re: I thought they said the JJ-comics were canon?

I don't know. Seems I still hear these reactions fairly often:

"I don't bother with the books because they're not canon."

"Why can't the books be canon?"
Same here. In fact, I would say I hear it more often than I ever did pre-Internet.

I also hear this conversation quite often:

Fan #1: But what about this inconsistency/plot hole in Episode #45?

Fan #2: That was explained in the novel The Enterprise Syndrome by Sherman Grant.

Fan #1: The books aren't canon, so that doesn't count.
"Canon is only important to certain people because they have to cling to their knowledge of the minutiae. Open your mind! Be a Star Trek fan and open your mind and say, 'Where does Star Trek want to take me now'." - Leonard Nimoy
