For over 22 years the Expanded Universe has been (for the most part) considered canon by Lucasfilm. However since the company's purchase by Disney and the fact that a ST is in the works, many of post-ROTJ EU stories may likely be either altered or removed from canon. But what if Disney wanted to do more than just that and completely eradicate the entire EU, declaring only the Films and T.V shows to be canon. There by making all EU works (novels, comics, video games etc) regardless of what era they're set in, non-canon.... hence the term ''going the Star Trek route''. How would you feel if this were to happen?.
