Some confusion was raised when ''[[Star Trek: Voyager]]'' producer [[Jeri Taylor]] wrote two novels (''[[Mosaic]]'' and ''Pathways'') and declared them to be canon. This was mainly for the purposes of providing background for [[Kathryn Janeway|Captain Janeway]]; the details in the book were not picked up on by other writers, however, and parts of the book were later contradicted outright on the show, firmly establishing the book as non-canon, an establishment strengthened when a statement was released reinforcing the fact that all the Star Trek books are effectively non-canon.
