The weekly missions and daily missions (operations and flash points) will award columi tokens. Run these and save up for a piece at a time, in addition to drops in the missions themselves. Good luck!

When you run a Hard Mode Flashpoint, the final boss in each FP will drop a "token" that can be redeemed at the vendor for a piece of Columi gear.

It goes:
Black Talon - Bracers
Esseles - Bracers
False Emperor - Chest
Directive 7 - Legs
Battle of Ilum - Offhand
Boading Party - Gloves
Foundry - Boots
Taral V - Gloves
Maelstron Prison - Boots
Kaon Under Siege - Boots

If you visit the kiosk in the Supplies area of the fleet, you can also pick of daily and weekly missions to run flashpoints. When turned in, you get Columi commendations which can be redeemed for gear.

There are also two operations that drop Columi gear - Eternity Vault and Karagga's Palace. These require 8 people (rather than the 4 for the flashpoints), and also drop Columi tokens for each boss:

Eternity Vault:
Droid - Gloves
Gharj - Offhand
Pylons - Legs
Council - Boots
Soa - Chest

Karagga's Palace
Bonethrasher - Head
Jarg/Sorno - Belt
Foreman Crusher - Bracers
Fabricator - Relic
Karagga - Mainhand

If you run the HM FP and Operations with the Group Finder, you also can get Black Hole commendations, which can be redeemed for really good gear. Columi is level 56 gear, but Black Hole is level 61 gear.

There are several HM flashpoints available, each of which provides different loot drops. There are several lists out there showing what drops where, here is one:

Probably the fastest way to get a group is to use the group finder...HOWEVER, please do not queue for group finder unless you are at least somewhat familiar with the flashpoint.

If you are not yet familiar with the HM flashpoints, I would suggest that you run their story mode versions a couple times first to help familiarize yourself with the fights.

The Rakata chest drops from HM LI. The remaining Rakata gear is dropped from HM Eternity Vault, HM Karagga's Palace, Story Mode Explosive Conflict and Story Mode Terror from Beyond.
