Yeah, noticed this yesterday. On the bright side, it's repeatable daily so you can get weapons for all of your companions in this manner.

Thanks in advance.... I REALLY need a teckblade for Vic.
That line might have started on Belsavis' space station but honestly I don't remember, sorry.

It's actually on the republic fleet from a mission terminal (I assume the same for imperials) in the inner ring runs around the outside of the cantina.

I suspect the reason there isn't is due to the fact that barring it using a barrel instead of a hilt you'd never be able to find an aim hilt to put in it. Then again at least they could have made the mod and enhancement slots moddable still. I dunno, BW really screwed the pooch when it came to Qyzen's itemization/stats. They may have had legitimate reasons for taking the route they did, but it's still just caused more problems.
Troopers have a companion that uses a techblade with aim primary stat also (IMO he's the best companion to use for a DPS or healing commando). So it's not like this is a unique problem.

There is quite a few of them listed in Torhead. But the locations aren't available yet.

You can buy mod-able weapons for every other companion with commendations.
I am pretty sure that Qyzen is just forgotten.
They will notice one day.

Oh I know, Troopers aren't even the only other one. Smugglers get Akaavi too who has the same problem, and the Imperials have their own mirrors. That's partly why it's really dumb. BW has all these companions now that have itemization problems just because they wouldn't make the graphic of strength armor look like trooper/BH armor when worn by certain companions.

You can also use strength for Qyzen. It does the same amount of bonus damage so you can use the jedi knight mods. Still the problem with the orange techblade which no one makes because no one really needs it

Strength only buffs his melee, not his tech dmg which accounts for a lot of his abilities.
