What is Fleet Canon?

Fleet Canon is the term used to define In Character events, groups, people, races, technology, and other items which are considered by the fleet-at-large to be fact, in so far as the fleet's fictional universe goes. Fleet Canon will add to the background flavour of the fleet and its operational area, and will be unique to Pegasus Fleet.

What is the difference from Regular Canon?
Regular Canon - or Trek Canon - is anything that has appeared on-screen in the 'Prime Universe' - The Original Series through to Voyager and Enterprise, the TOS and The Next Generation Movies. Trek Canon is considered to be Canon throughout all the sims playing in the Trek Prime Universe; it is Universal to Star Trek fans everywhere.

Fleet Canon is only canon within the confines of this fleet. It will likely not even exist at all in any other simming fleets or fandoms on the internet; it is ours and ours alone.

Do I have to follow Fleet Canon?
No, absolutely not. Whilst items of Fleet Canon will be accepted by the fleet itself as fact, it is up to each individual CO whether they wish to use them within their own simulations. All you will need to be aware of is the fact that any centric fleet story arc will be based on select items of Fleet Canon. Items which are put forth as Fleet Canon should similarly not be considered to be a complete rejection of the item itself; any CO is free to use anything that is not Fleet Canon on their own sims, with the understanding that it simply will not be considered as Fact by the Fleet body - it can still be Canon on your sim, without being Canon in the Fleet as a whole.
