    We actually know some of the events that lead up to the disappearance of the B, according to the Haynes Manual, the B was lost due to the crew contacting a disease.

      I believe he meant in canon Fredrick. Anything not seen on TV or in the movies is not canon.

    Well, you are almost right, but also Trademark Novels are canon. Like Star Trek Titan/Destiny etc. Not only TV Series or Movies.

    I love the forced costume change in Temporal Ambassador is a great mechanic. I would like to see is made available in the foundry. and the next update is more akin to a Star Trek “Movie” instead of a season.

    No, actually “trademark novels” are not considered canon.
    “The Star Trek canon is generally defined as all live-action television series and feature films released by Paramount Pictures. With the release of Star Trek: The Animated Series on DVD, the studio appears to have changed its stance, and is now listing the cartoon series (aired 1973–1974), as a part of established canon. The various “official” references (such as the Star Trek Encyclopedia or the Star Trek Chronology) may be used as a guide to canon information, but are not canon in and of themselves.”

    When a game uses material from the books and comics, the idea of canon goes out the window and except for other video games, just about anything official trek is considered game.
