Seriously, this thread deserves much better than it's getting right now. Yes, people, we're all perfectly aware that
's campaigns represent the one true FreeSpace canon, and no one's debating that, but that's not what this thread is about. If all you're going to do is come in here and repeat, "Only
is canon," maybe you'd be better off posting elsewhere.
That aside, I've found myself doing pretty much the same thing with the FS storyline, primarly for the campaigns that I count among my favorites. I really love the whole backstory that TVWP has come up with for a period of the FS storyline that really isn't covered much at all in canon material, and I'd gladly take it as my "official" interpretation. ST:R is pretty much the only campaign with which I'd be completely fine overwriting
's own material; the way I see it myself, it is
Silent Threat, and that other old campaign is best forgotten. There are a few other campaigns that I keep in some sort of loose "they really happened" category, though I don't think that many of them mesh all that well timeline-wise with each other. I don't think that Cardinal Spear, Shrouding the Light, and Destiny of Peace play very nice with each other, but I love their portrayal of the Reconstruction period; likewise, Derelict, Warzone, and the Procyon Insurgency all present great options for events occurring relatively soon after Capella. I know that none of these campaigns can ever be "official," but I feel like their collective atmosphere is close enough to what
gave us that I'm able to count them as members of my own nebulous concept of the FS universe.
