    Another clear sign of canon/non-canon continuity conflict and contradiction! This subject was already covered in the novel ‘The Sorrows Of Empire’. A novel that confirms what was already established in the Mirror Universe by the time DS9 rolled around.

    Paramount really needs to revaluate its policies on what is canon and what has already been established.

    This looks like so much fun!

    The whole canon/non canon issue is clear: the only “canon” is what’s been on screen. Everything else is fan-fiction.

    I’m digging this. Pretty damned clever, and with the extra fun of giving those of us who’ve watched them way, way too many times the chance to play Name That Episode from panel to panel. I’ll be checking this out.

    Canon is onscreen. Non-canon is not. The few exceptions are officially-endorsed books like the Trek chronologies, encyclopedias, and technical manuals written by the production staff or specifically commissioned by Paramount.
    All else is, if you like it, fine; if you don’t, don’t worry, it doesn’t count.

    * Edit: With the exception of most of TAS and probably all of Star Trek V, which Roddenberry more or less booted out.

    I would say buyer beware when it comes to this book.

    These images from the book were posted at John Byrne’s site. They show very obvious mistakes that should never have seen print. Rather than explain them, John Byrne deleted the photos and banned the person. If I am spending $7.99 on a comic book, I would expect there to be no floating or missing legs and blobs for hands.

    The images.

    The page after they were removed and the person banned.

    This is off topic and will understand if you remove it, but if you allow me this one post, I promise it will be my last on this subject. Thank you.

    It looks like John Byrne found these comments because he posted this today at this thread: http://www.byrnerobotics.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=43808&TPN=63

    “Found a website that have a positive review — and was immediately chastised for so doing by a poster who claimed that a JBF member had pointed out Photoshop goofs and been banned for doing so.

    This was somewhat amusing. The poster clearly referring to himself in the third person, on this other site was a chuckle. But especially so was the fact that I had long had this clown on IGNORE and had not even SEEN his critical posts. So one of the Mods must have nuked him, and for other reasons — of which there were plenty!”

    I just wanted to reply to John. First, I’m not the person banned. I’m a current member of the JBF, posted twice in the last hour in fact. I’m not the banned poster, I don’t know the banned poster. Secondly and most important, John clearly is lying that he had the person on ignore and another mod nuked it.

    My first screencap clearly shows that John posted his reminder about people waiting to reply when a question is asked of a specific person while the images of mistakes were up. Who else could John been referring too? He just “happened” to decide to give that reminder then? Then a minute after John posts that, in my second screencap I show the person was banned and his posts showing the mistakes were deleted.

    Yet John claims another mod did it. I’ve spoken to a mod before. I was told while they can hide posts, only John bans people. Also if you follow the JBF for any length of time you’ll find that when John puts someone on Ignore, he always makes a big production of it and posts that he is. He never did that with the banned poster. In fact, if you look through threads you can see John replying to him earlier.

    So there you have it, easily caught in a lie. Oh and look in the thread I linked. John has now claimed mistakes can only be seen because people read the comics digitally where they are sharper and brighter images and he “intends” the comics to be read in print. So rather than do a better job, his excuse is “we” don’t read them right.
