I find that sometimes it makes a huge difference which companion you have with you when you are doing the storyline quests.
It gives you some extra dialogue sometimes.
For example I regret not bringing jaesa willsaam to Taris since you meet up with a former padawan of her former master there and I feel that she would have alot more to say in those conversations than vette did.

So I was wondering, what special dialogues do you guys know of for the different companions?
I heard that as a trooper on belsavis if you have Elara out when you come across a wounded soldier in a cutscene she gives you a medical diagnosis and a different conversation thant you would otherwise. And in another part of belsavis you can punch someone and if you have Tanno Vik out, he'll say "that the best you got" to you and punch the guy again.

I'd love to hear some more examples like this from the different classes!

Hmm... well it has been a while, but I know that Theran and Holiday have several of these moments. They are great because Holiday is priceless in these instances. But specifially, I can't remember where the occur. I'm leveling a Shadow at the moment and will note them when they occur.

As a rule you should bring Kira on every quest after you get her. I might just have bad luck but T7 doesnt have a lot to say, then again even if he did its not as cool as what Kira would have to say.

Edit: A quick add is that I mean bring her for Chapter One

The only place you should lead Kira, is into her tomb, never to be seen again. Get Treek, instead. Or even HK :P well, in my opinion, anyway.

To me the best thing to bring is a healer companion, unless the quest asks specifically for one of my companions. In some missions when I have to deal with a large amount of mobs I bring my tank-companion who attacks and kills like a destroyer. Really depends of your gaming style.

This scene was pretty underwhelming. She says one sentence and aftter that she says nothing.

Blizz has one scene in voss at the gormak base, that was pretty funny:

Kaliyo asked you to steal something on Hoth.
Gault was pretty cool on Alderan.
