How do I send my companions on crew missions? I heard you can send them to go find certain things.
Once you have left the starter planet, you can pickup crafting skills on the fleet ship. Once you have those, Click on the dimond icon in the top bar, this opens a window showing your compaions. Next two them will be the crafting skills you picked, click on the gathering skill and a second window will open showing the missions you can send the compaion on. select one and click the button on the bottom right which says "Send Compaion", they will then go off for however long the mission takes and report back when done.
