Would also appreciate a clarification on whether lines of dialogue cut from the script (or edited out of the movie, and never released) are canon, non-canon, or some kind of psuedo-canon. -- umrguy42 20:14 (CDT) 16 Apr 2005

  • As long as they are differentiated by a note that they were cut from the final draft, they make excellent suppliments in cases where useful dialogue was cut because of time constraints or rewrites, etc. Scenes cut from movies that are actually filmed can, and often have been reinserted are really as good as canon. --Alan del Beccio 04:16, 21 Oct 2005 (UTC)
    • Unless something unfilmed in the script conflicts with actually filmed footage or other canon references (names, dates, events, etc). This is one reason why, personally, I've always considered pseudo-canon or fanon material to be the equivalent to an alternate timeline/parallel universe. It's the only logical way to clean up the numerous loose threads and contradictory information accumulated through Star Trek.--Mike Nobody 04:36, 21 Oct 2005 (UTC)
      • We're not talking about fanon, or alternate timelines -- its more of a matter of variations or exclusions of canon made by official writers, not mere authors of novels or fan-fics. For the most part, there hasn't been anymore (significant) contradictions in the cut script/filmed material than there has been in offically filmed (canon) material. --Alan del Beccio 04:49, 21 Oct 2005 (UTC)
