ENT's "In a Mirror, Darkly" wrote some background information for Captain Archer that would have revealed the year of 1701's launch date.

"Archer died peacefully in his home in upstate New York the year 2245, exactly one day after attending the christening ceremony of the first Federation Starship Enerprise. NCC-1701."

Sadly this did not make it to screen, but while it is not technically canon, it is the next best thing.

All it would take would be to make TAS canon again...which would return Robert April to canon...the rest would be academic.

:logical:

If Kirk's captaincy started in 2265; Spock served with Cpt. Pike for ten years; then Cpt. April had 2 five year missions thus leading to 2245. ¿Is this it?

Well just about every reference book (about 12 or 13)I have lists a date of 2245 except for Mandel's.

Mind you this includes a 1 year shakedown and trials (most likely under Capt April), then commisioned and given to Pike to command for two 5 year missions. Unknown time for refit and upgrades then Kirk's 5 year mission. 18 months for a complete refit. Then another 5 yr mission under Kirk. Lastly it serves as a training ship at the academy for an unknown length of time.

So I can account for at least 22 years of her life straight from memory.

probably as early as 2240 as late as 2245. But according to the new movie 2258 in the alternate reality.

Who officialy and legally has the right to say what is or isn't canon now?

In other words, if there was any one person or entity that COULD say TAS was canon now, and it would be "official" and legitimate, who would that be?

Since there's no series in the works (that we know of), I would guess the job would probably fall to whoever is the head of CBS Special Products...if not the head of CBS Studios Inc. him/herself.

:logical:

That's interesting.. canon could become whatever they want it to.

CBS would love for Star Trek: The Animated Series to be accepted as canon.

*cha-ching!!!*

LOL!!! The ironic part is, that at one point it was canon.

TAS isn't considered "official"...more like fanon.

Making it canon would put TAS on equal footing with every other Trek series and movie.

:logical:

It's canon that has been decanonized, not fanon. It had the voices of most of the TOS actors.

Just a matter of note and file.  ;)  :logical:

 2245....I by no means have all of Trek history memorized, but, that's certainly one date from my old dogeared original copy of Chronology that I recall quite well. Works for me, especially if Mike Okuda is involved.

TAS gave Spock's mom the maiden name of Grayson,
which was used in STAR TREK '09. "Tiberious" was
given as Kirk's middle name, in TAS, then used in
The Undiscovered Country. ENTERPRISE referenced
TAS in "The Forge" ... TAS seems "canon" to me!

TAS doesn't contradict canon anywhere does it? At least, no more than TOS conflicts with later shows?

Canon launch date? I didn't know it was launched that way. Cool.
