If this event is not introduced to Holodeck until Season 8, then Season 8 is now on Tribble IMO. As I mentioned in my other post, Legacy of Romulus had just the Character Creation screen and Trait System when it first went to Tribble. So it doesn't matter the size of the patch notes, but when it will get to Holodeck. If this event gets to the Holodeck in the next couple of weeks, then it is not part of Season 8. If this event gets to the Holodeck in a couple of months with all the other Season 8 content, then it is part of Season 8 and Season 8 is now on Tribble.
the Voth are part of season 8 so in a sense we will not see this event till then, so yes this is a part of S8 but not nearly all of it but just a piece as in previous season/expansion test they put out a little at a time then open it all up for one big weekend test before it goes to holodeck, just be patient and you will see that this is only just the begining of S8 content to hit tribble, more than likely future notes will mention S8 of some type.
Think harder. I compared it to the omega reputation system because I knew it would be for the Voth rep system. If it even manages to give as many Voth points as an elite Borg mission does omega rep I bet you won't be getting 900+ dilithium or a decent chance at a mk 12 purple item.
The devs aren't making multiple worthwhile 5 mans because the reputation system won't be doing anything other than growing. I'm just about ready to jump off this train, it's not slowing down or changing direction, and it's not challenging or rewarding beyond the sparse elite content.
the new rep coming to S8 is going to be different than past rep and if it goes well and people like it then the previous rep will be change to match if you jump ship so be it, but most likely you will miss out on the goods then gripe that you did jump ship.
