Could see them release it early November with bugs and all. Just to give more time between S8 and Winter Event.

Season updates tend to be spaced out 6 months between them, give or take a month or two. S7 came out early December 2012, S6 came out in July same year. S5 came out in December 2011 while S4 came out July 2011. S3 and S2 came out... you guessed it, December and July 2010.

LoR did spoil the precedent somewhat by being released late-May, but if they stick to form then S8 should come out either late-November or early-December. It won't 'conflict' with the Winter Event, it will coincide with it, like S7 did.

If you are insanely optimistic it will be released on October 31st.

Once you've finished "Sphere of Influence," our upcoming featured episode that unlocks the path to the Sphere, you can travel directly there from the Tau Dewa Sector Block. We look forward to seeing you in the Sphere - Dyson Joint Command is going to need all the help that they can get!

I dont think anyone is that optimistic, but it does contradict what we know.

They said there is some kind of event running after the episode, so im thinking maybe a sphere space map, where you transwarp to the sphere and then have to clear out some Voth ships protecting the entrance ready for the main expedition in s8 or something along those lines? So its possible we can go there straight after the episode, just we cant enter.

OOOOH! That would be soooo cool!
It would be fantastic if it were a Fleet Action!
20 Players against the Voth Expedition Armada... ongoing, Non-Stop, Non-Queued Event till S8 or even forever...

I... have to go now...

More likely it will start off as a ground mission on New Romulus, where you walk through the stargate...er I mean the Iconian Gate and end up somewhere in the Sphere where you jack an Obilesk Carrier so you can get home again, blasting your way through Voth ships and sphere automated defences so the carrier can transwarp.

The new FE Mission will run 1 week - that will be the week you can earn the Carrier. After that the new FE will only give normal rewards. After that Cryptic is running a FE rerun series with the other FEs that will last 2 weeks. That means the soonest Season 8 will Launch is the 21st - though it could come sometime after that. As the 28th is Thanksgiving Cryptic will be closed Thursday and Friday, so if it's not the 21st we're looking into December for the Launch - or else they pop it out on a Tuesday or Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Check the calendar: The rerun starts the 31st, and runs through Thanksgiving - if S8 isn't until after the rerun ends, it'll be pushed into December at best.

We have never been given a one week timetable for the FE (Gecko said at least two, in fact), only a "couple week at least" event that is separate from the rerun but has not been officially announced, starting with the FE and ending with the S8 launch.
