Re: Do you agree with TNG being cut short for the movies/other shows?

I have never heard of an 8-season contract in any Star Trek series, what is your source?

Contracts were originally six seasons, with an option for a seventh (which is how DS9 lost Terry Farrell). Seven seasons was ideal for the studio, as contractural salaries (actors and crew) increased every year and after X seasons, there would have been reduced revenue from syndication rights.
