I know there are 2 novels, Best Destiny and Final Frontier. The Wikipedia article for Kirk mentions these as if they were concrete canon material. How do these books and other apocrypha get de-canonized? Who or what decides what is and isn't canon? Is there a list of canon sources vs uncanon? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Thanks for your time.

No novels are canon. Well, the novels by Jeri Taylor were sort of considered canon for a while but not anymore. But anyway, no, not canonical. Canon is the live action shows and films. The animated series is canon to MA and Paramount is moving towards making it canon. --Golden Monkey 00:25, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
You may want to review the canon policy--31dot 00:29, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
