errrm... pets arent's companions.... this bug got in the game a couple of times (seems to be somewhat resilient, lol)
I think the first time happened when they first released those holo-statues thingies. They would count as companion and people were using it on flashpoints and operations, mostly to get an Orbital Strike
They fixed a bug. Nothing to do with bioanalysis.
Ah I see, thank you. I knew about the bug with statues, but always figured this was intentional, as I have never seen it fixed (I've played since pre-launch) and I must have missed it in the patch notes. Thank's a bunch!
