Not Discovery related but I didn't want to create a new thread for it. Trek lovers might get a kick out of this picture.

I'm surprised this guy doesn't know Star Trek's policy on canon. Books have never been canon. For a long period even the Trek animated series wasn't canon, though various shows would take things from the cartoon and make them canon in live-action shows. Trek has been more clear about that than Star Wars. For Trek, if it's not live-action it's not canon. The biggest wrinkle is that CBS appears to have made the animated series canon now, whereas I've read in the past that Gene Roddenberry did not consider it canon and that view held until recently. I've also read that Roddenberry didn't consider parts of Star Trek V canon either, though that was always considered canon to my knowledge regardless of his personal feelings on the matter since it was a live-action Trek production.

I do think that some things from books or stories have been made canon over the years though. I believe both the names Hikaru and Nyota came from stories/books and later adopted for the live-action characters, though it took until the 2009 Trek film to make Uhura's first name officially canon, though it had pretty was the standard first name for the books long by that point.
