While that's true, I've always had the impression the biggest problems from TCW have been more because of the narrow mindedness of whoever writes the summaries for the OS than some of the possibly innocent errors in the episodes themselves. Sure, disregard is annoying, but we see it in most novels too, it just doesn't "jump out" at people as easily as when it's a moving picture on the TV screen ("Oh, Golden screwed up again? Whatever. I'll ignore that page and call it a typo"). We could be doing the same thing for TCW that we do for when a new author stuffs up their research, but it's been the powers beyond the show itself who have made issues out of things that could easily have just been hand waved aside. At the end of the day, however EU friendly the ST sets out to be, I'm not expecting it to be 100% successful -- few books ever are -- which is why I'll be more concerned with what Disney themselves are motivated by. The primacy of their "artistic vision" like Lucas was? Or will they just be more willing to shrug and say "whatever" and let bygones be bygones if the ST makes a blooper?
