It certainly has been a long time! My apologies that it has taken me so long to reply. Time has been my enemy in the last couple of years and I've been fighting an uphill battle.
To answer your question, my original plan for starting Memory Omega was to have a wikia the solely focused on the novel and comic aspects of the franchise. In my opinion, Memory Beta had become to overbloated with information from various games and other licensed material. No fault attributed to anyone here, indeed I did add a lot of data from the Armada titles and what-not in Memory Beta's infancy, and it is keeping with Beta's remit.
With limiting the source material available to the wikia, I was hoping to reduce the varied contradictory sources. After all, in 2017, the novelverse was the only game in town, with only contradictions from earlier novels or comics to worry about. Of course, it's a slightly different game now with the release of Picard. At least you could squint and fit Discovery in to the overall material.
I hope this answers some of your questions. Great to hear from you.
