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.

Recently, Paramount has further confused the issue by describing  Trek canon as [http://www.startrek.com/startrek/view/help/faqs/faq/676.html"fluid" and "open to interpretation"]. It is at this point unknown how the upcoming [[Star Trek XI]] will - or won't - fit in with the established canon.

The [[Star Trek (2009)|2009 Star Trek movie]] causes an alternate timeline from TOS and later series, so it should be considered a separate canon from them.
