The Star Control 1 manual cannot be canon. It directly Star Control 2 by saying that the year of first contact was 2612 instead of 2115. It also states the date of the Androsynth rebellion to be 2535 instead of 2085. I have edited the page to say the manual isn't canon.

Why is Star Control 3 non-canon? Does it contradict Star Control 1 or 2?

I understand your argument, but other than the those dates, everything else in the manual is considered canon. By the same argument we would have to throw out the SC2 manual since it disagrees with Commander Hayes' description of pre-First War history and also with the location of the Syreen homeworld and its name. Anyways, they creators were bound to make some errors and the full ideas of SC2 probably weren't completely fleshed out when they were creating SC1. We can allow for a little bit of retconning I think. As for Star Control 3, it was not made by Toys for Bob, who made SC1 and SC2, and it is the general consensus of most SC fans (afaik) that SC3 not be considered Star Control canon. The Star Control canon, as the articles says, is "everything which is generally considered to be part of the Star Control Universe, as intended by Toys For Bob," which imho cannot exclude the SC1 manual solely on the basis of some retconned dates. In the end though this is a site policy and most editors rely on the SC1 manual when editting articles - so I would say take it up with the site's head admin/creator, SvdB, if you think it shouldn't be considered as canon.

I apologize for editing the page without the express consensus of anyone. I forgot that this is a policy page. Anyway, do you agree with the edits? This seems the most logical prioritizing, as it can be deduced by looking at the discrepancies. Valaggar 18:54, 12 May 2007 (CEST)
