Re: If you could only have one: Transporter or Holodeck
You know you don't have to get angsty to get your point across. Plenty of fans include and exclude different parts of the franchise. Of course what is on screen is considered cannon but I chose to discount it from my own personal cannon for various reason.
As I just said: Canon and continuity are not the same thing. Continuity is what you're talking about. Canon is simply what is considered official, i.e. any episode or movie.
In labor news: Longshoremen walked off the piers today. Rescue operations are continuing.
