Are we canonically dead?

Yup - and this was seen as a great horror/tragedy by the people of the Federation and afterward - which led to them using genetic engineering to create people with natural lifespans of around 400 years (or 800 for Superiors). The idea is that if civilization falls for some reason this is a built in safeguard against people dying for long enough to (hopefully) get things back on their feet sufficiently to re-introduce life extension tech. Given the amount of redundancy that Terragens probably build into anything they consider important, things getting so bad that people had to fall back on their natural lifespans would likely mean things had really and hugely gone of the rails.
