When applied to FreeSpace, canon is anything that has been confirmed as official truth within the FreeSpace universe by Volition. This is largely limited to in-game data, most often from either mission briefings and debriefings, Command briefings, in-mission messages, cut-scenes and the tech room. However, a few other non in-game sources can be considered canon, such as the Freespace Reference Bible. All other information is non-canon and should not be treated as official.

Non-canon information is not entirely disallowed on the FreeSpace Wiki. However, when submitting anything, canon information should take precedence; non-canon information should always be clearly labelled as such and, wherever possible, separated from the main article through use of the non-canon tag:

It can be used in an article with the following tag: {{non-canon}}

If this is not possible, ensure that non-canon data is clearly marked by other means, for example, asterisks (*) with a footnote at the base of the page.
