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.
I guess it's ironic that the one of the filmmakers is a fan of the novels and used elements from them, yet there are people who hate the idea of elements from the film making their way into the novels
