CCP have recently released a video containing a basic overview of the new sovereignty mechanics that came with the Aegis release.
The video details the process of capturing a station, beginning with the initial reinforcement using an entosis link, then moving to the capture of various nodes throughout the constellation. After that it talks about the neutral freeport mode that a station enters should the defenders fail and finally the video discusses the free-for-all period where any alliance can attempt to claim the station during the final timer. CCP then stressed how diplomacy and intrigue also plays a large role in the defence and capture of stations in the form of making and breaking alliances.
A minor point of interest is that most of the ships displayed in the video are battleships. This might be taken as a hint that CCP intends to make more changes to try and return the battleship to its position as the dominant nullsec doctrine ship type.
