As I stated, I've always considered "canon" to be played rather "fast and loose," anyway, thoughout the series. Things are changed, or modified, like Trills, for example. Their look was radically changed, as were other aspects and nobody takes notice. Yet, when Scotty gets new plumbing in his Engine Room, in keeping with the new movies, fanboys are eating their own.
Yeah, pretty much. People excuse what they like and raise hell over what they don't. Technically, Voyager's journey is fundamentally incompatible with the speeds and distances crossed in TOS and the classic movies (they'd have made it in a month, tops). I think less people realised that than freaked out about Chris Pine's blue eyes.
