Re: Think We'll Ever See A Trek Series Longer Than 7 seasons?

Well, season lengths are shorter now than they used to be. Heck, the Trek shows continued doing 26-episode seasons long after pretty much every other show on US network/syndicated television had dropped to 22 -- and even there the norm is to start with a 13-episode order and then pick up the back nine if the show does well enough. On cable, it's typical for shows to have seasons between 13 and 20 episodes in length, often split into halves for fall/spring or winter/summer airing.
