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

It still matters to some fans, even outside Trek. It doesn't matter if it's WAREHOUSE 13, THE 4400, UNDERWORLD, or whatever; whenever I do a tie-in book, I can count on getting a few urgent queries from people who really want to know if the books are "canon" or not.
This doesn't seem to be such a big deal on the mainstream side of things. Nobody has ever asked me if my CSI or ALIAS books are canon!
It definitely appears to be more a genre-specific issue.
I can't remember seeing a lot of NCIS fans up in arms because in the pilot episode Gibbs and Tobias had just met, yet a couple of seasons later it's revealed that Tobias had previously divorced Gibb's ex-wife, who he had advised not to marry as she would clean out his bank accounts when she left!
