Exactly what is Canon for the Grand Story?

Recommended Posts

Alright, so here are the parts from Star Trek and Star Wars that are canon for the ASVS Grand Story.

Star Trek side:

Definitely Canon:

TV shows:
 - Star Trek: Enterprise
 - Star Trek: Discovery - Season 2
 - Star Trek: The Original Series (with the exception of "Spock's Brain")
 - Star Trek: The Next Generation
 - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
 - Star Trek: Voyager (with the exception of "Threshold")

 - Star Trek: The Motion Picture
 - Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
 - Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
 - Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
 - Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
 - Star Trek: Generations
 - Star Trek: First Contact
 - Star Trek: Insurrection
 - Star Trek: Nemesis
 - Star Trek (2009) (The parts that take place in the prime reality, anyway, such as the destruction of Romulus)
 - Star Trek Beyond (The parts that were set up before the timelines diverged, such as the disappearance of the USS Franklin)

Video Games:
 - Star Trek Online (with the exception of the 29th century stuff, the Kelvin timeline stuff, and ya know what?  Just all time travel stuff.)

 - Star Trek: To Reign In Hell - The Exile of Khan Noonien Singh
 - Pathways (the parts that aren't contradicted by the show, anyway)
 - Mosaic (again, see "Pathways")


Partially Canon/Canon in a "Broad Strokes" Way:
 - Star Trek: Discovery - Season 1


Mostly Non-Canon:

TV Shows:
 - Star Trek: The Animated Series (only the episode "Yesteryear" and the characters of M'Ress and Arex are canon for this story)

 - Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (only McCoy's Pain is canon)


Definitely Non-Canon:

TV Shows:
 - Star Trek: Discovery - Season 3

 - Star Trek Into Darkness

All Star Trek literature, comics, and video games not previously listed.


Uncertain (Canon Status to be decided once these works actually debut):

TV Shows:
 - Star Trek: Picard
 - Star Trek: Lower Decks
 - The Untitled Section 31 Series
 - The In-Progress Nickelodeon Cartoon



Star Wars side:

Definitely Canon:

 - The Phantom Menace
 - Attack of the Clones
 - Revenge of the Sith
 - Solo
 - Rogue One
 - A New Hope
 - The Empire Strikes Back
 - Return of the Jedi

TV Shows:
 - Star Wars: The Clone Wars
 - Star Wars: Rebels

 - A New Dawn
 - The "New" Thrawn Trilogy


Partially Canon/Canon in a "Broad Strokes" Way:

 - The Force Awakens

TV Shows:
 - Star Wars: Resistance

 - Pretty much the rest of the new Star Wars Expanded Universe


Mostly Non-Canon:
 - The Last Jedi (only a few planets and classes of starship are canon, regarding THAT movie!)


Uncertain (Canon Status to be decided once these works actually debut):

 - The Rise of Skywalker

TV Shows:
 - The Mandalorian


A little thing to note, however, is that the firepower for the Star Wars side's ships has been boosted somewhat compared to canon.  And the reason for this is simple - so that it DOESN'T turn into an utter curbstomp in Trek's favor.  Stompfics are no fun to read, and we want to create a story that both Trekkies and Warsies can enjoy.
