Hey, most of the series only made it to seven seasons anyway, so it would be fitting. STO will obviously continue on, so might as well call the massive updates something else.

I still think there's no reason to change the naming scheme for their major updates (and code syncs) just because this one is 'really big.' It's only going to lead to confusion by calling it anything other than Season 8, and especially if the December update goes back to being called a season.

To the devs: just say this is the biggest season release STO has ever had. Problem solved.

They can't call the May update a Season because no Star Trek is allowed to go to Season 8

"might" also implies that it might not.
