Intriguing.... Maybe they've come to realize the same thing about how close they already are? XD

Zenith--good one. All that talk about his Graystar. I'd buy it.

Who else...C2 ship droid?
Now that I'm thinking it over a bit more with regards to my main (shadow tank), I think Theran is probably the only one who really *wouldn't* work out in a retrofit, since his storyline is *very* focused on his pre-existing romance... And maybe Qyzen wouldn't work; no real flirting or moodiness in him, mostly just needing to hunt.

I haven't gotten this far on my agent, but doesn't Ensign Temple get a little affection from courting gifts from a female Agent?

I did my research and noticed that she does, but think my brain is playing tricks on me.

Well, lets hope the new companions are more tougher, because the current ones are too squishy, you technically need to have a specific companion depending on your character's spec for an optimal playthrough, which i personally find as a huge mistake on bioware's part.

I do look forward to the SGR stuff, it should have been in the game from day 1, but thats just my opinion.

Gear+Presence makes my Kira capable of decimating elites, or packs with Strongs solo. Companion toughness is fine, they just need to be kept up to date.

However, I'd love to run with my alts (brought up\down to my level) as companions, though. Naturally, it would be hard to implement AI for all classes and specs, so they could just be given "companion classes", as in "melee DPS, melee tank", etc. while they're with me.

I can agree with that. However, nothing as aggressive as Zhevran\Anders from DA1-2. They were too damn insistent. Unless they implement a "Slap" option to reject them. Hey - it's OK for women to slap men for being too bold in their advances. Why can't men slap men for exactly the same reason? Equal slapping rights for everyone, I say!

I read this at first thinking in context of romance

Yes, slap option for all!

I don't think females can even do it now.

Or I guess you could roll a Sith Pureblood and use their racial ability.

Yes, well. Bowdaar gets affection with Courting gifts from the Smuggler, and I don't think he's going to be a romance option.

He does? Ohh, Bowdaar.
He seems to go for all of the companion gift types I wouldn't have pegged him for. Representing the "sensitive" wookie to the galaxy

I had no idea. I have enough Zeltron Personal Aroma Sets for both Bowdaar and Kira...although...could be taken as an insult, inundating a wookie with perfume. And my smug needs both arms intact and attached.
(I had no idea about Kira either- this'll help heaps since she's the only JK companion I don't have maxed)

The following companions have set my gaydar off:

Corso - For the 1000th time, yes, I know that you like and respect women. Why do you keep bringing it up and what are you trying to prove?
Torian - Hairstyle - he's just too prettied up to be your typical Mandalorian warrior. He often says strange innuendos to the male BH like "I'll bring up the rear".
Quinn - Dotes excessively on the male Sith Warrior. I think he actually liked it when I nearly choked him to death. Must be into BDSM?
Dashto Vant - Arsenal Mercenary - The most dashing bounty hunter in the galaxy.
