(What is canon?)
Line 9: Line 9:
 
Writers are often more concerned about what is a part of continuity than what is canon, and tend to answer questions with that in mind. For example, in the canon novelization of ''A New Hope'', [[Luke Skywalker|Luke]] was designated Blue 5. In the canon movie, he was Red 5. The "Red 5" designation is considered a part of continuity while "Blue 5" is not, even though both conflicting facts are canon. (See the ''Star Wars'' canon section below for more details on how ''Star Wars'' canon is determined.)

Some fans develop their own concepts of Canon, based on personal preference. THis can range anywhere from "There was never a Star Wars Holiday Special" to "[[Enterprise]] was just a holodeck simulation". [[Darkstar|Some]] might prefer their version of events to the actual series canon, and ignore or argue over what actually happened.
