There was a link posted to these articles over in the ST11 forum. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. The articles discuss the validity of canon, Roddenberry's view of canon (at least around the time of TMP), and the new film. I'm posting this here because I'm hoping to get impressions from others who have read Robbenberry's novelization of TMP. Here's a quote from the article... These articles are really interesting in the kerfuffle about canon, but considering Roddenberry's complete tossing of TOS in this novel, and his apparent desire to make Trek more in line with the depth of SF novels is really interesting. From a SF fan to other SF fans: What do you make of this? And: Have you read the TMP novelization, and what did you think?
