Mostly for Midget (or anyone else with a lot of beta experience), does your physical level have any bearing on how successful you are with crew skill missions like treasure hunting and archaeology?

Is it possible to just get gathering skills like in most other MMOs and then just auction the resulting items off? I never craft, only sell. Makes some good cash that way.

Yes, I've found the best thing to do for money-making on a toon is to get Slicing and 2 other gathering skills, or Slicing + Gathering Skill + Investigation.

I believe I will do just that, then.

I'm upset with myself... my trooper has Cyber/Scavenging/Slicing (primarily for the money on Slicing). I was having a blast slicing safes while running around and made a decent amount of money. But then I got to the point where I was leveling up my Cyber and got to the point where I could really use some of the Underworld Metals.

Then I dropped Slicing for UT. I can already feel my money going away too quickly and I haven't done much crafting/missions since the swap. I just hate not having my slicing and already regret it. But people charge too much for my metals on the AH and I'm not quite ready yet to start alt-hopping.

I need to do some research into what all sells the best. I just got a Consular to 10 and took Slicing, Arch and Scavenging.

Something I just thought of: Does each companion get the choice of 3 skills, or do you learn the skills and they all apply to the companions?

You learn the skills and they apply to all the companions.

Wow. I can't imagine ever having to catch up on skills once you get multiple companions. Just got my ship and busting out crew missions or crafting constantly even while running my own missions.

I phrased that poorly. The crew skills are your skills. The level you have in each skill is yours. Your companions just do the work for you. No catching up, just more minions to do your work.

Yeah, I was happy when I got my 4th companion. Now I can have 3 doing crew skills while still having Elara Dorne with me should I need her... shame it drains my money like mad when I do so.

No, I phrased it poorly. I meant that I can't imagine it being difficult getting your crew skills up once you have multiple companions.

My reading comprehension is subpar.

I just discovered you can queue up up to 5 crafts at a time for one of your companions. Well, you can have them all do up to 5 crafts at a time. Just press the "CRAFT" button more than once, up to 5 times. Only works for crafting, not missions, unfortunately.

That's right! When I was on my kick to bust out my Cybernetics, I had 3 folks going at all times.
