"Canon," in terms of a fictional universe, is a body of material that is considered to be "genuine" or "official", that can be directly referenced as, or as if it were, material produced by the original author or creator of a series. New works set within that universe are ostensibly constrained to be consistent with pre-existing canon. For our community, we use the above ideal as our mantra for managing this server.
One key element of SWG Canon is that we will not be having player Jedi of any kind. This is in sticking with Star Wars canon where Jedis were not common, if not nearly extinct in the same time frame as preCU SWG is set.www.swgcanon.com
