you do realize that it doesn't take very long to max out your crew members affection, and then you're still stuck with way too many gift missions.
Then you make an alt and you have five more companions to get to max affection
. If you balance your crew skills right then you will only have one of each and you then want to do gift missions on one character to send to another.
Ironically enough, I did exactly that and there have been points where I wanted companion gift missions and there were none
That's right UT grade 6 had two fabrics and three metals missions. I obviously took advantage of the situation, but it slowed down my goal.
