Default New Starfleet Technical Manual?

I still have my original Starfleet Technical Manual from when it first came out. Now that we have a fresh new Star Trek to carry us forward, how about a revised Starfleet Technical Manual to go along with it? It would go a long way to help establish canon for the new Star Trek universe. I assume the script writers were probably given guidelines about what is canon now with this new Star Trek describing the ships, characters, etc. just like they did with the original series? Also, I think a new Star Trek Blueprints packet would be cool too, with scale ship(s) and set plans.

You don't need any thought to be put into a popcorn movie, from what I've read in the forum, the warp core is a hamster in a wheel.

Oh god no! They ejected the hamsters into the black hole?!



(multiple hamsters since there were multiple cores ejected)

No hamsters were harmed in the making of this movie.

Besides, Scotty was working with tribbles as a viable alternative.
Higher reproductive qualities and more easily replaceable.

Totally. Totally off topic, but I would really like to see Morena Baccarin ( Adria - Stargate SG-1 ) gobble up a hamster.

As far as a Technical Manual revision goes, that would be up to the Okudas and whether TPTB will let them flesh out a revised universe they have nothing to do with. JJ & Co. MAY want to do it themselves.

Baccarin I know of from Serenity.
Fine lady. Will check out the V series only because of her.

Okudas? Gah! GAH! GAH!
No Okudas. No Okudas. No Okudas.

Would a Richard Gere joke be too out of line here?

Yeah, but don't worry - they'll pop out the other side, back into the prime universe, bald, tattooed and thirsting for revenge!
