The creator of Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry once said that "It isn't Star Trek until I say it's Star Trek." This statement generally isn't taken seriously however, as it would render all material made since late 1991 non-canon. In practice, only on-screen live action material from the ten films and five television series is considered to be canon.

Star Trek also has its own novel series. The rules for this are defined by the Pocket Books (the arm of Paramount in charge of the novels) submission guide, which states that continuity with the films and shows must always be respected, and while contradicting other novels is discouraged, it's not actually forbidden.
