Why is it other sites get exclusive screenshots before this one does?

I think I have seen a better Akira in Legacy and Bridge Commander. Textures are good. Lighting is good. Model is not so good.
You're right about the Akira having a lower curve poly count then an akira in Legacy. The rest of it looks fine I think. Now it's either not 100% finished OR the model curves aren't going to be super high poly to save processing.
Legacy, after all, was a single player with minor multi-player support. Very different type of game for an MMO and as such model poly limits are going to be very different.

-edit-
I do wanna add that the episodic content sounds a lot like a quest chain, something I loved in WoW.

Yes. Quest chains, as you call them on your planet, also go a long way toward diminishing one's sense of mindless grinding, because you're actually following a plot thread, instead of just "Harvest 20 tribble pelts and return to me for a reward" Rinse. Repeat. Ad nauseam.
