My suggestion wo0uld be (CBS and everyone else permitting) to take on a subtitle and start over with Season 1.

The "Season" thing was always a wink at the IP.

I imagine any other MMO would have gone with Patch 1.1 through Patch 1.4, probably treated Season 5 as Patch 2.0 and we'd be coming up on 2.2.

Star Trek shows last 7 seasons, ideally. It looks to me like S7 sets up a lot of changes and S8 is going to be heavy when it comes to payoff and change.

I think it's a Cryptic tradition to use "Issue" and keep going on up in numbers but I think a numeric relaunch might actually do the game some good from a marketing standpoint.

Y'Know, "Star Trek: Online Gateways Season 1" or whatever.

It would have been bizarre if they had left it a subscription-based game. They don't do those. The instant anybody heard PWE was thinking of buying Cryptic, the very first thing to cross their minds would have been "oh, that means all of Cryptic's games will be F2P".
I'd be interested in playing some of the other games cryptic has too except they dont have anything like the dilithium system on those others.

Actually, their only other current game, Champions Online, has something almost identical to it; Questionite.

It remains to be seen what Neverwinter will have, but it's not even in beta yet.

City of Heroes and City of Villains aren't Cryptic's anymore, they were sold to NCSoft years ago; plus they're shutting down in a month and a half.

So at this point, EVERY Cryptic game has a system like dilithium.

Awesome, a glass half full..half empty thread.For the naysayers, here's a satisfying response. DOOOOOOOOMMMMM!!!!!For the positive outlook folks,I am quite sure this game will be around for awhile, and even thoughI have only been here for eight months, I have seen alot of new missions, and polish being added.But for the" gotta have it! gotta have it yesterday!" crowd, it might be too slow.
Think a minute,Doff system-added.2800 series added to the Cardassian missions.The Vault added to the Romulan missions.Tholian missions added, Starbases added.Like the away team on the transporter pad visuals added to the mission beamdowns.That was alot of material added to the game in eight months.Ive been waiting for almost two years for a sequel, and apology to the dragon age series by bioware.
So I bet this game will be around for awhile yet.As long as it's here, I will play it.
That redshirt, Totally got vaped!!!
