    Another clear sign of Star Trek canon and continuity being screwed up. We already learned about what happened in the mirror universe with the novel The Sorrows Of Empire. Why write a photonovel that will contradict events that have already been explained.

    Paramount and Pocket Books really have their collective heads up their asses. A condition that also plagues farragut Films and their business partners.

    Not everything is about Vietnam, Walter.

  • Daniel Ireland

    Because novels aren’t considered canon? Does it really matter?

  • Trekkie2

    I learned awhile back that these comics have not a thing to do with canon and continuity in Star Trek, and everything to do with stupid and stupidity. I let it go some time ago.

  • Blue Thunder

    The ONLY Star Trek novel that would ever be considered as canon was James Gunn’s novelization of the late Theodore Sturgeon’s The Joy Machine. An episode that Sturgeon had originally submitted into the original series production, but was turned down. As to why it was turned down, I do not know.

    Now you have me curious, was that the only script for any of the shows that was turned down and turned into a comic?

  • Blue Thunder

    To the best of my knowledge, yes it was the only script.

    Oh thanks, I just snorted tea out of my nose.

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    Gods’ tits but that looked stupid.
    What little I’ve seen of the Khan comic seems to be a good attempt at reconciling Star Trek Into Whiter Than White with established canon. I have to wonder, does Bob Orci ever read the good comics to see how things can be done? Or, for that matter, read?

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    Off-subject of course, but I’m really looking forward to James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
