Canonicity

This website splits documents into four broad categories of canonicity:

Canonical

Canonical documents have been confirmed to be true in the Elite: Dangerous universe.

Guideline

Guideline documents weigh heavily on the minds of people building the Elite: Dangerous canon, but are not guaranteed to be true. Much of the canon from the Frontier games falls into this category

Inspiration

Inspiration documents are probably known to the people building the Elite: Dangerous canon, and may impact their decisions

Mixed

Mixed documents embellish real information in confusing ways. Many dreamers have made the Frontier universe a happy home, but be careful not to mistake these pages for facts.

Speculation

Speculation documents could influence the people building the Elite: Dangerous canon, but they have absolutely no obligations.
