Companion Quest Confusion

When I started this game, I had heard that companions have their own quests. What I didn't realize at the time was that for most companions, the quests are just conversations on the ship. Only one companion actually has a story that ever takes you off the ship to do some quests.

From one place I read, it looks like your class's first companion is the one with the real quests. I've only leveled one toon, a BH,

However, I've also started a Jedi Knight, with T7 as my first companion.

And is it really the 1st companion for all the classes?

Can't help concerning Kira; the highest I've gotten a JK before deletion is level 14. But as for all the Imp classes and off-the-ship quests:

So it would seem that way, 1st companion with all the rest going off to do their individual quests without you. Maybe Kira is the exception?

Kira does give you actual quests.

I've re-edited my original post with spoiler tags just in case anyone doesn't want to know that information, but it does seem like this rule is true:

So this leads me to a similar question: are the companions mirrored from one class to the next? For example, does the ranged tank for one class have the same skill set as the ranged tank from another class?

for the most part, yes, but their skills may have slight differences. for example, Khem is the only melee tank companion i know of that has a form of life steal. i haven't played every single class yet, so i can't say for sure, but out of the ones that i've seen, that is the case. the animations may be different too from companion to companion. but in general, yes, they all have the same skills.
