Among Alien Nation fans, I don't remember any issue at all. No one talked about continuity, canon, alternate universes, or anything like that.
Granted, that was a long time ago. I'm not really active in any fandom, other than making occasion posts here. Can anyone else comment on the similarities and differences between Trek fans and other fans when it comes to continuity?
It depends on whether you're closely connected to a largish group of fans. My Star Trek friends shared Star Trek rumours, retcons and bloopers, but when we noticed continuity problems in "V: The Series" (two different episodes introduced the alien crivits and
the character of Kyle Bates, because one of the episodes was chosen not to be screened, and didn't get put back into a sequence until the VHS release), none of us cared. I'm sure if there were "V" clubs that there were members up in arms. But "V" and "Alien Nation" fandoms were miniscule compared to Trek.
