Re: Question for the Authors

First, thanks to both of you for your responses. I really appreciate your taking the time.

Keith: I just Googled for "kurtzman orci trek canon" and limited the results to 2007-2009. The results contain a myriad of interviews in which they're obviously dissembling (as expected when concealing a major plot point) but clearly indicating nonetheless that the decision to reboot was -- as Christopher mentioned above -- to afford themselves creative latitude.

Rick Berman talks about the difficulties in staying true to Canon in this interview. I can recall similar complaints from Brannon Braga during Voyager and explaining why Enterprise would be so liberating, although I can't seem to dig up any direct quotes while distracted by work.

Novelist David Mack notes the freedom he has with created characters -- the implication that he's limited with the established ones.

"It is logically impossible for people to know God exists without any proven evidence. It is, however logically plausible to believe something does not exist if there is no evidence of it."
