The one question I have has had is that the purple 340 investigation missions (also useless) seem to drop a disproportionate amount. Anyone else seeing that or is it just bad RNG on my part?
Currently all Purple missions are bugged. This is known to BW with no fix date yet.

And I never made much until I realized, "hey - I can send out my idle companions to get more!" The big credits come from away missions, and not all that slowly if you keep it up.

And that's exactly it. RNGs in these kinds of games are notoriously streaky, so it's not unusual to try and reach out and determine if something has in fact changed, or if the RNG just hates us today.
Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.

What is the difference between running from one slicing node to another and trashing mobs? Both are gathering AKA grind.
I'll bet I can make more credits buy trashing mobs because mobs have something 3+ minutes respawn timer and slicing nodes 30 minutes.

I do not think that is what he meant. I know (because I have two slicers) that in the course of doing whatever I'm doing (leveling, dailies, etc) I will find a number of slicer nodes. Every one you gather is free credits. That is what he's talking about.

Ever since getting my second companion (actual companion not the ship droid) always having two companions open for crew skills. I constantly send them both on slicing missions and am making a ton of money. I already have three times as much money as my first character at this level.
