Canon, to me, is anything that anyone wants to do as long as it makes a modicum of sense with what the general population
knows about Trek. If all of a sudden Spock was a Marxist terrorist and the Enterprise had 4 nacelles and the Romulans were all blonde and buff, that would be bad.
Otherwise, heaven knows, anything goes! And why shouldn't it? Making a movie for an audience of 500 doesn't make much sense.
