Neither "Season" nor "Expansion"?[edit source]

I just wanted to point out that it doesn't seem correct to label Age of Discovery as "Season Fifteen". Cryptic has never applied this title to it (and in fact, has pretty much avoided labeling this as anything other than a "release"). Also, they have hinted that Age of Discovery will be an ongoing addition to the game, that will run concurrently with the 2510 storyline. -- Tadayou (talk) 16:53, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Good point. I've been wondering where the S15 moniker came from. AoD is basically an expansion spread over time. Kind regards, Markonian (talk) 22:30, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
The Random Task Force Operations blog calls AOD Season 15 specifically. SFC (talk) 01:22, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
Also, just watched the latest AmbassadorKael vlog. He and BorticusCryptic call it Season 15, too. Kind regards, Markonian (talk) 17:03, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
I think technically this is season 15, but it isn't really being marketed as such. It isn't in the logos or blogs. I think the reason for that is they're doing part 1, 2 and 3. Perhaps "Season 15" should be acknowledged in the article, but not titled as such. And given the length of time, separate articles for each part might make sense.Scientifictheory (talk) 11:21, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Yeah. Once Part 2 comes out I'll remove the Season 15 moniker. I disagree on the separate articles however, keeping it on all this page should be fine. We'll see though. SFC (talk) 13:28, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
In theory, you might be right. But what I'm thinking is that each "part" we'll probably get new ships, episodes, features etc. so we'll have each section duplicated repeatedly covering six months of content that would normally be separate articles. By part 3 it would probably make sense to split it, and by then the'll be a lot of links to update. Maybe address that question when we see the feature list announced for part 2.Scientifictheory (talk) 07:55, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
Should probably move it to Age of Discovery but I don't think it should be split into different pages, just like how the pages for Delta Rising, AOY, etc aren't split between their main release and subsequent .5 releases. - RadioActivitii (talk) 20:49, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Despite our previous beliefs, it seems Cryptic considered this normal season releases. What confused us was the phrase "expansion released over time". If everyone agrees, I'd rename this page to Season Fifteen: Age of Discovery, and move the other two seasons into their own separate pages. --PiralDorrm (talk) 08:48, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Removed missions[edit source]

If 8 missions have been removed from the game, why don't those missions have the historical archive template at the top of the page? --49.177.229.185 04:08, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

It's temporary removal, they're coming back once they've been remastered.Scientifictheory (talk) 09:04, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
I don't see them coming back any time soon. They were even forcibly removed from your journal if you still had them stashed for safekeeping. Thus there is a point for declaring them historical archives until (if) they come back. --Dukedom (talk) 09:28, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
A fair point, and as they're away for a while I think we're looking at a Romulan Mystery-style remaking anyway. Although do mark as historic all the old information and related articles for those missions too? Given it would probably return again.Scientifictheory (talk) 13:49, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
That reminds me, I made a template to put on the old Klingon War missions since the devs were adamant they weren't 'removed', just unavailable. Template:Unavailable. SFC (talk) 16:04, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
