Not everyone uses FB, e.g. me. Also, when this is known since friday, it would have been nice to link in here, too.

Interesting. Good to see they get things started again.
Though I'm not sure how these card packs are supposed to work.
Imagine a new player who buys the new starter set and is interested in Ferengi afterwards. Does he have to buy the Kreetcha with its more or less outdated cards and a different format and then additionally the D'kora card pack to actually play that one ship? Or should he buy the now unpainted new ships?

Again, I really appreciate the restart, but I'd like it even more if they'd restock all the old waves or even better, update them with the new card format.

The faction packs are full packs with painted ships. They are designed to allow you to get a usable fleet from a single purchase. By all accounts the 4 ship pack will be the same price as 2 individual single ship packs that we used to get.

Are the two kelvin constitution duplicates or two same sculpts with different card packs?
Similarly, are the two kelvin k'tinga duplicates?

There's no further detail than what's been provided. Logical guess - Enterprise and Enterprise-A for the 2 connies. As for the Klingons, 2 odds are 2 named ships, at least 2 captains, and plenty of upgrades.
Remember, EVERYTHING here is mirror universe. They can play it however they want. That gives them a lot of flexibility.

They do have sculpts for the Kelvin timeline Enterprise and Klingon ship from the Star Trek: Expeditions game so I would guess they'd use those models.

I would rather they just do some Star Trek Discovery ships versus this weird Kelvin timeline addition but I guess the more the merrier.

It might depend on the licensing agreement that WK signed with CBS/P as to what ships they can add to STAW.

Nevermind adding more ships, I want WK to woo back all the FLGS' that they have lost. That should be a priority.

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

Are they releasing a 2.0 of the rules? What are the big changes if they are?

It's already been released on their website. Here's the thread about it that discusses the notable changes:

I am unreasonably excited for potentially 3 more named JH Attack Fighters.

Also, more Constitutions and K’t’ingas. Sweet
