Jedi Consular and I cant talk to Tharan Cedrax or Qyzan Fess on my ship. I can however talk to them in a cantina but in the cantina Tharan is saying he wants to talk to me on my ship.

I had that happen to me last night. My companion wanted to talk to me on my ship, but when we boarded the ship, he had nothing to say. And when we left the ship, he wanted to talk to me. So I tried the cantina (the one where we've conversed in before) and he had nothing to say.

Maybe it's bugged?

I am a Sith Warrior and had the same situation with Vette(affection around 6500 as i post this).I had the conversation mark and I was going from random Cantinas to my ship but she seemed to change her mind.Suddenly last night I was in my ship finishing a quest and Vette gets the quest mark above her head.That was it for me after that I talked with her like ten times in a row.

Yep, same here. I have maxed out affection with Elara Dorne, and I can't talk to her at all, not since about 7500 affection. I have tried everything and apparently the "Want to talk on the ship" icon that shows up on their portrait is completely fake. It just shows up whenever it feels like it, and when I go to the ship to try it out, it doesn't work at all. Same thing wiht the "talk in private" icon. If I ever get lucky enough when she actually wants to talk (last time was around 7500, now im at 10000), she gives me all the built up dialog quests that I wasnt able to do before. I really want this bug to get noticed so they can hurry up and fix it.

I think the "want to talk" icons are still a little bugged - the best indicator of whether they want to talk, and where, is usually when you click on them and they tell you. The icon will show up sometimes and disappear randomly, but the voice over has been correct for me in all cases.

I'm a Sith Inquisitor, lvl 19 and I'm unable to talk to Khem aboard my ship or in a cantina. I've talked to him in a cantina before, though. When I click on him, he tells me he wants to talk privately on my ship. When I get to the ship, his companion icon disappears and I can't summon him, but he's not gone. He's in the room across the hall from the entrance/exit from the ship.... I guess it's his "bedroom" because there are beds in the room. When I click on him, he just tells me he's tired of waiting. Why can't I summon him and see his companion picture when I'm on my ship? I guess this is a bug, but it's really irritating. I hope they fix it soon.

There is no summoning companions on a ship. They are just there. If anything is a bug, it's likely him saying he wants to talk to you. Give him some gifts, raise his affection by like 500 and continue with your class quest. You'll be able to talk to him, I am halfway to my third 50 and have never had issues talking to companions.

Affection is around 2750/10000. I'll try giving more gifts and see if that helps. I realize companion conversations are bugged for some. Thanks for your response.

New player here but, I had trouble talking to her, I just went to the cantina and a private area ish
Like on the starship fleet, I went to the red carpeted areas with tables and chairs and right clicked to start a conversation and it worked.

Have not run into any other problems,
try going to different areas on your ship/different areas of cantinas

Some conversation HAVE to be in the ship and some can just be in the cantina.

Tip: If you are planning to "max out" the affection as much as you can, it is better to give level 1 gift that they LOVE until around 4k THEN talk to them. You will gain same amount of affection when talking to them and it is "cheaper" to gain them after 4k (after that gifts get VERY expensive)

Cantina or your personal ship or the republic/imperial fleet
