It's pretty obvious that these articles were written with the assumption that the game would be released already.
Yea, the base game has a Cardassian expansion leaflet that says "out now!".
Before this I was playing A Game of Thrones a lot, which is clocking in at one POD card expansion every 2 or 3 years. So even if there's delays, I'm just glad they've got so many ideas for the future.
