This preview is like getting honeymoon from your dad on your fifth anniversary. I hope FFG won't always miss the mark so hard with their previews.
That first sentence sounds like something out of a VC Andrews novel. I know what you mean (I hope), but it just read funny.
Ultimately, I felt the same way when I saw the preview article. I would say that for the most part, those of us who are actively playing the game have read all the material contained withing the new ship boxes (movement data, pilot cards, upgrade cards) so none of this is really "news" to us, but I can see the article still being of value to a more casual player, or even a non-player that is interested in the game.
I'll tell you right now, back in the summer, when the Wave 2 information was floating around, and I saw that a Millenium Falcon was going to be a thing in this game, it went from "mildly interested" to "must have" on my list immediately. I suspect the preview article will provide similar results for any people still on the fence about whether or not to get into the game.
