In our game the other night we made use of the Area effect using the ship's Phasers. Effects were rolled on the Challenge Dice so multiple ships were affected. All fine, no problem so far. Then reading the Area entry it makes no mention as to whether the damage is duplicated for each effect, or if damage is divided. We went with duplicated, but I couldn't find a definitive statement either way.

Is damage duplicated RAI? If so what is the intended Momentum cost for additional damage, i.e. does adding a single addition damage become duplicated as well?

Each affected target suffers the total damage rolled (including from Momentum, the cost of which remains unchanged).

Thank Steve. So if we rolled say 1,2,effect and spent 1 momentum for damage, 2 targets take 5. That's how we played it but as I couldn't see a definite answer I was a little unsure.

You are indeed correct.
