No we are not dealing with a TV show we are dealing with Star Trek, and when it comes to canon (cannon is something you put on your escort, you can thank me later) it's the holy words of Trek. As much as i hate canon, and always love story over canon in Trek,if you're going to use canon at least use it right, and there is no assuming this happen in Star Trek when it comes to fans.

If it was not "on screen" it did not happen.
