Actually, they've stated ion a couple of interviews, only the impending May Update in NOT being called a Season (as in their mind, it's bigger than a normal 'Season Update'); and that they may go back to calling an Update a 'Season' again, depending on intent/size. Although does tghat mean the first post May Update with 'Season' status would then inherit the "Season 8' name since even though the May Update was first referred to as 'Season 8' - it lost that title?

Yep, seems 'Cryptic' to me too.

As for the fabled PvP Update - remember - Gozer was assigned to that 'full time', until he left (again) for a different game development company (happens all the time) in July of 2012 - and since, no STO Dev has been assigned/taken ownership of said PvP Update liike Gozer had (althoufgh Borticus has been tweaking existing STO PvP for better or worse since Gozer left).
^^^
Thus, with no one assigned full time to working on revamping STO's PvP; there's no telling when (or if) the 'PvP Update' will happen (Be it in May, or a future STO Update).

Actually we were told a Dev was assigned to take over where Gozer left, but no name was given and I was led to assume it was a very new junior one.

pretty sure we are waiting on never winter to ship, so they can use their pvp architecture code and put it in STO. it sounds like if they want to do any changes or add maps right now, they have to do it coding in binary or something lol

I shudder at the thought of what might break when the NW code gets merged back in...

Well that explains the persistant I win button tacticals have and the continuous oblivious nerfs science has continued to endure.

People will complain that Dual Heavy Magic Missiles are OP compared to Magic Missile Arrays. Nobody will question WTF Magic Missiles are doing in STO, but they will still complain that Dual Heavy Magic Missiles are OP compared to Magic Missile Arrays...

...oh yeah, FAW still won't work right with the Magic Missile Arrays.
