A lot of vague hints in this one...

But what I got from it... We will be getting 2 patches before the expansion. 2.9 and 2.10.
Since he mentioned that Forged Aliances will lead into the expansion. I am guessing that main storyline will "end" with the third part but it sets the groundwork for what we will be seeing in the expansion.

Compliment: The master continues to provide content. I look forward to terminating hostilities.

I swear, getting information out of BioWare about plot for up-coming expansions and updates is like Mulder's hunt for extraterrestrials in the X-files...full of crackpot theories and EA conspiracies, with little evidence to back anything up.

Yeah great, so 2.9 will have one storytelling tactical flashpoint for each faction with no challenging hardmode ? Awesome.
How about announcing the eta of a new operation before even the most dedicated raiders will leave?

So, is Manaan going to be an actual planet, or just an FP?
Just a FP

Most likely two flashpoints, like the Czerka FP it's going to be in two parts, the second FP is probably called Manaan Underwater station or something.

Just like in WoW, the 3.0 is going to update the game with the new stuff coming in the expansion and the expansion comes later and unlocks the content. It's in order to make the downloads easier since there isn't going to be such a rush to download them.

As far as the Story of SWTOR mostly vague talk that there will be some rather than any details on what the story will be.
For a post that claims "Charles Boyd talks story" I expected a bit more information other than "those flashpoints you knew were coming had some story and the expansion will have some story too".

To me it looks like that droid is plugged into the wookiee's chestpiece. Maybe he uses it for translation instead of just carrying it around for stylish reasons.

So, there will be some more non-disclosed story stuff at a non-disclosed time.

I feel very much informed now.

Part 1 of Forged Alliances has been available for some time now (since Game Update 2.7: Invasion). Part 2 will be included in Game Update 2.9: Galactic Strongholds, coming August 19th (little over 3 weeks), and will probably take place on Manaan. When will Part 3 and beyond appear, no one knows, but many assume that Part 1 and 2 are setting the stage for new story in the new expansion (game Update 3.0).
