Can planets seen but never mentioned in-game be considered quasi-canon? --FlamingCobra 22:51, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

  • I think that's reasonable. However, those planets seen in the FSPort missions are 100% non-canon, since those were added by the FSPort team and not present in the original missions. The original FS1 did not have any planet bitmaps. (CBanims and cutscenes are a different story, of course) - Snail 10:23, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
    • Really? What about this Betelgeuse BG Planet.png and this Antares BG Planet.png? They came straight from the original FreeSpace 1 campaign. --FlamingCobra 15:13, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
      • Those are both from non retail versions of the FreeSpace 1 campaign, possibly a DVD re-release, an early demo or the OEM version. Whether or not they are considered canon is up to debate. However, I can assure you that the retail version did not have ant planet bitmaps. - Snail 15:44, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
        • Yeah, I tried to update once, and it said I couldn't because it was a non-retail version. But it is not a demo, it is the whole campaign (aside from Silent Threat), and it is on a DVD. I got my copy as a part of a bundled software package a long long time ago. It came with my old Gateway Windows ME computer. --FlamingCobra 15:59, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
