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 Note: 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.

Is the Millennium Falcon in the Star Trek canonical universe?

  • Yes. In "Star Trek: First Contact", Starfleet received some assistance from the ship that could make the Kessel Run in fourteen twelve parsecs.

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