TONS of Zabraks.

I see a butt load of Troopers. Like so many that it bothers me to play mine.

I imagine the Pyrotech/Vanguard pop has also increased and Operative/Scoundrel further decreased.

Keep dreaming Georg, keep dreaming.

Keep in mind there are two distinct Zabrak choices out there. Female Republic Zabrak Imperial Agent?

Yeah, the operatives and scoundrels haven't had a good first year, they need DPS and healing comparable at least to the other classes and I also personally feel the sorcerers and sages need to either get a little more damage or a little bit more durability back, not as much as before, but enough to bring them back in line with the others

It depends. I'm not bothered to play my Zabrak Trooper because there aren't so many Dark-brown-skinned Republic Zabraks on my server. I'd would rather say I'm quite an exception in the middle of all these pale-skinned Zabraks and Maul-like Zabraks.

Yeah I have one of those, I rarely see any other people running around with the set-up. My legacy RP idea in my head is my female blue twi'lek had a adopted force sensitive son that was taking from her by the Empire. Woot unique toon.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix

I've yet to see any Cyborg Inquisitors or Knights, though.
My Knight is Cyborg.

For Republic, I think your list is close, but for the Empire, your list is off a bit. It should be:

Republic:
  • Knight (Sentinel)
  • Consular (Shadow)
  • Knight (Guardian)
  • Trooper (Vanguard)
  • Smuggler (Gunslinger)
  • Consular (Sage)
  • Trooper (Commando)
  • Smuggler (Scoundrel)

Empire:
  • Inquisitor (Assassin)
  • Warrior (Juggernaut)
  • Bounty Hunter (Powertech)
  • Warrior (Marauder)
  • Bounty Hunter (Mercenary)
  • Inquisitor (Sorcerer)
  • Agent (Sniper)
  • Agent (Operative)
I do quite often parse /who in republic fleet. I check /who for all levels and for level 50 specifically and the picture is quite different. This is how it looks like:

Republic:
  • Knight (Sentinel)
  • Knight (Guardian)
  • Consular (Sage)
  • Consular (Shadow)
  • Trooper (Commando)
  • Trooper (Vanguard)
  • Smuggler (Gunslinger)
  • Smuggler (Scoundrel)

However:
1. While there are always (in like 95% of times I parsed) more Sentinels and Guardians, the number of Sages, Shadows and Commandos fluctuate quite a bit and I noticed only a very slight difference in how often sages outnumber the other two advanced classes.
2. Then there are almost always fewer Vanguards than Commandos or Shadows or Sages.
3. Gunslingers rarely meet average numbers for Vanguards.
4. Finally there are only a little bit less Scoundrels than Gunslingers. However, I see Scoundrels outnumbering Gunslingers more often these days.
