# 1 Seasons

I just realized this.

We've said on here that no Star Trek has ever lasted past 7 seasons*, and in an odd way, that seems to have come true for STO here. I mean, Dstahl has said that the update in May won't be a season, so in that regard, we WILL be in season 7 still for most, if not all of the year.

*Yes I know that's mostly just the name they use.

I am just wondering if Season 7 airs the Series Finale and "Season 8" has the series premiere of the next STO series.

Would be funny if the devs put up a message the day they take the servers down for the major May update, "Thank you playing Star Trek Online: The Beta. Now Star Trek Online: The Actual MMO will begin in a few hours."

Season 8 will most likely be the patch in later 2013.

but yes, it really is just a name. personally i think they should stay with seasons to matter what. its less confusing but i guess they want to advertise this as something special.

not surprising i guess with into Darkness coming out that you would want to try and promote the game as much as possible.

Or maybe they have an internal name...

Season 8: Cancelled

We are just funding NWN and this is all an exercise in PR and C-Store management?

No way. Cryptic would not do us like that!

Naw, what we shall see are re-runs.

Since Season 5 was just half of what Season 4 was supposed to be ... not true at least every ST-Show had ~20 Episodes per Season ... so a good point for what Dstahl is actually saying ... just PR ... no TV-Show is gonna be a Movie just because it has more than 20 Episodes either ...
