What does persistent mean, game wise

What do these mean?

"new persistent story arc that is similar to a distress call "

"Persistent story content"

Like a daily refreshed distress call missions?

    My definition of persistence in gaming is the exact opposite of refreshed. Like the real world, a persistent gaming world keeps turning even if you aren't logged on. So I would say it's story content that changes globally, based on all player actions.

    I am just guessing, but think of the Distress Call section(s) on the galaxy map. Once you complete a section, it might reset with new distress calls, thus giving us perpetually "open" missions to complete.

    This would be a very significant development I would love to see happen. It would be great if this game actually had gameplay.

    nah I think it's a new mission series (I guess not numbered) that remains permanently.

    So a new distress call?

    are the current chapters considered "Persistent story content"?

    It means CBS has told DB that the next content needs to be a distress call that adds a new mission with each weekly episode, and that this is their priority for new story content.

    That makes sense. Discovery mega Distress Call.

    If it were me..
    I would look at those pesky to create expeditions as a 2 for 1 scenario..

    Create a few, use them as hybrids or fulls or whatever, then after a week transplant them in to distress calls / episodes whichever.. it's a cost saving move as it's one creation for two functions, advances the storyline and.. adds event diversity..

    But.. that's just me.
    Interested to see how it actually plays out.

    I dunno what it is or might be, but I hope it includes things like 2* Encoded Communiques, Medical Experiments, Romulan Encryption Algorithms, etc. at less brutal drop rates than presently exist elsewhere.
