Relics besides Matrix Cubes

The other day I finally got 6 Matrix Shards and thought "hurray time to get 2 Matrix Cubes and be overpowered" on my lowly character. I quickly found out that I can only make one of them at a time and the other shards are going to me a waste.

Oh well, though I wish I knew this sooner.

But now I am looking into trying to get other relics for me and my Companions. I have a few questions:

How are people getting Relics? Are they only item drops? Can you buy them?

Many relics have Alignment requirements, does that mean that I can't use them on my companions?

Thanks in advance! I am an avid reader of guides and looking up info, but I can't seem to find any on Relics.

The easiest relics to get are the ones sold from the Light Side and Dark Side vendors. They start at level 20, Light/Dark Side I, and there are better ones that require higher level and alignment, up to level 50 and LS/DS V. They are quite cheap too. They give a nice amount of Endurance, and a boost to one secondary stat when used (similar to trinkets in WoW, if you're familiar with those).
There are also drops and crafted relics. For high levels I believe you can get them for commendations from dailies or PvP.

As far as I know, companions do not have relic slots - the customization slot is in its place.

Thanks a lot for the response, I'll go give the Fleet Vendors my money.

Or make someone on the GTN happy.

FYI you use to be able to place the matrix cube in your cargo hold and craft a 2nd one. Not sure if they changed this or not.

BTW Relics are also loot from treasure hunting missions.
