Well, if it's officially stated to be a continuation, it's an official continuation. If we're not going to trust the official word, who are we going to trust? Yes but see, it's back then. G2 was the one, true ending back then (excluding that UK annual story), canon can be changed. For all intents and purposes, Simon Furman wrote RG1 to be the proper ending to the original series. Yeah, I hated that part.
