It's a question of semantics: what you call a misguided homage, I call a rip-off.
I guess it depends on your own boundaries. I don't think it's nearly close enough to the original to be called a rip-off. Also, don't we usually use that term to mean that someone stole an idea from someone else, and if so, how can this happen within a franchise ? For instance, can someone rip themselves off ?

I would have thought the point was obvious: if source A presents certain information, but source B does not ( though it also does not contradict it ), while sources A and B are in the same continuity, source B's failure to provide the information does not somehow make the information non-canonical. It does not have to be presented over and over again in each successive piece of canon in order to be considered valid.
OK but I don't see how this relates to what I said.
And that's my opinion.
