If you like the looks of your toon, you will likely have to remod all the gear at one point or another - full mods + reaugmenting (slots + actual augments) on all your gear ,or the pieces that you keep and not change, but, ultimately, you will have to augment your ear and implants also.

A very expensive business if you`ll do it with BiS or close to mods / augments, on a large number of alts.

But I do think it will happen at some point. But keep in mind.. they have shown a willingness to add new content types that are not level based [Like GSF]... so they could very well take a new direction at any time in this regard.

The only thing inevitable about MMOs is:

1) they change over time.
2) they eventually close somewhere down the road.
they announced that there would be a level cap raise already. It actually is inevitable. Its from the Boulder Cantina tour (if you look its almost completely at teh bottom of the page where they mention a level cap increase that we will hear about "sooner rather than later". my guess is that it will come with the makeb-like expansion coming this year.)

If and when they raise the level cap I would like them to avoid expanding the talent trees. Just let us spread out a little more than we can currently.

This is not gonna happen. They are gonna have to expand the trees......if they just gave you another 5 points to spend then this would open the door for many possibly OP hybrid specs. Just look at dotsmash hybrid which is getting nerfed in the next patch

No it won't. You are talking about an isolated incident.

Or maybe not smooth, rip it off like a bandage. Don't leave me in wait for the stuff that is to come. Tell me so I am prepared.

I would also like to know how the commendations system is going to be altered. There are so many different comms for us 50+'s at the top from basic to ultimate. Will they all become useless? Who has played an MMO and has experience with what happens to us when 60 hits.

My gear. I love the way my toon looks right now. I've gotten several compliments on my 55 Sentinel Maddelyn.
"Maddelyn you look like a G!" Is my favorite so far. I have seen controversy over the expanding armor sets looking worse than the items back at 50.

What is in store for the Galaxy we love so much? If anyone has any info on the plans for the future please share.
It will be the same as when it went from 50 to 55. If you are in BiS gear, you will have no problem leveling to the new cap. Your current gear *might* be the minimum to start new level 60 dailies/SM OPs. It might not. I imagine they will bridge the gap again with level 58 gear similar to the current 53 that you can earn fairly easily.

Higher levels mean a new gear treadmill. No way around that.

Indeed. There really is no reason to raise the level cap. It's a lazy and an artificial way of adding "content".
I see their R2 droid and I grab it. No, you can't have it back, silly rabbit!

Not the new gear worrying me. Its the new achievements ... Please BW , dont put new leveling achievements. I spend 1,5 years of leveling to get all 8 classes to lvl 55. I dont want to lose another 5 months to get my 7 unused alts to 60.
