What is "Canon"?

This is not canon, sadly...

Star Trek canon is defined as:

Alpha Canon includes officially licensed print materials, such as movie tie-in comics, novelizations of canon productions, and the like.

Beta Canon includes productions licensed by CBS or Paramount Pictures but not produced by either, such as novels and other published works of fiction and non-fiction.

For the sake of this guide, only official canon material is acknowledged.

Editor's Notes:  When canon is found to contradict itself, we find it best to assume the newest information to be official as long as it can be justified in universe.  Otherwise, assume it is correct for that series / movie.

While not canon, "Star Trek Continues" has been included in our lists.  The fan-made series is true to the spirit of Roddenberry's vision and delivers quality writing, acting, and film editing.

Is the Millennium Falcon in the Star Trek canonical universe?

The Official Star Trek Cannon fires Star Trek DVDs and is wholly ineffective as a siege weapon.
