Based on this interview with Rich Vogel and this preview from Massively, let's see what sort of info they're giving us...
- Player ships that don't actually fly anywhere. Instead they are glorified apartments and transportation hubs (kind of like a personal flight master)
- War Zones = Battlegrounds
- Crafting will be similar to WoW
- There will be Raids
- There will be Gear Progression
Unfortunately, it seems to me that they're heading in a direction that will make this game World of Warcraft with Lightsabers, which I find very disappointing.
