Yeah some classes have some companions missing. The theory I've heard is that if they're not in the list, they're soon to appear in the story. But who knows.

[QUOTE=LordZorith;8563543]im missing Broonmark, Quinn affection should be 10 as it before KOFE but he is now lvl 3 and Vette should be 10 and shes lvl 4... so i accessed my companions early just to see them lost affection somehow drastically?

That's weird - my affection levels transferred properly. Must still be buggy.

I still can't get my old companions back. The terminal won't even let me click on it.

Not all companions can be returned via terminal.

I thought this was the only purpose of Companion Return Terminal - to return them all no matter what?

Also another post on reddit:

I guess it is fair to assume the terminal is not yet fully functional then.

Well I confirm that Agents can get Ensign Temple back at least. She was able to be summoned for me and we had a great time doing some heroics today.

Just tried my Sith Warrior (which started life at level 60), and only had access to Vette, Quinn, and Jaesa - no Pierce or Broonmark. Still bugged or intentional? I was under the impression you'd get access to ALL pre 4.0 companions - not going to bother taking my pre 4.0 alts through KotFE if this is intentional.

Pierce you'll get as part of the story -- he's one of the people all Empire characters get a chance to recruit once they've set up their base. Not sure about the other one but various classes do have people who are not currently retrievable. Not sure if it's intentional or not.

Charles Boyd: It is definitely our goal to bring them all back over time, especially the romanceable companions. Ultimately, though, we’re going to do what’s best for the story we’re trying to tell – we don’t want to misuse a beloved character and cram them into a story they don’t fit just to check a box. This was a big impetus for our inclusion of the Companion Locator Terminal – since we knew it could take some time for the story to cover that many characters (not to mention all of the new characters we want to include!) we wanted to be sure our players had an option that would let them hang out with their favorites in a non-storyline capacity at least and hopefully make the wait a bit easier.

So... Why I can not bring back all my companions through the terminal? Why hide some of them?

From what I understand, each class has one companion that you can't get back. I assume that's because they are going to be returned much sooner. For example, though I don't have an agent done with the story to check, I imagine you probably cannot get Kailyo via the terminal. But, you'll get her back in January.

As of 5/23/2019 it doesn't seem to be fixed. It looks like maybe they shut it down? I'm not sure, I just haven't been able to access it at all but wanted to post something on it to keep it up to date.
