Kirk's parents being Winona and George.
Uhura being a skilled linguist.
Both of which originated in the novels and were adopted by the movies.
But ST09 canonized them. (cue angelic choir)
Which means they are retroactively part of the contamination
I keep going back to this: The character backstories from the new movies isn't created from vapor, it's always been there in the novels. This is just the first time writers have given enough of a damn to use it, rather than snub it.
