Khem Val, Corso, Rusk, Broonmark... take your pick.

EDIT: yeah, Quinn is quite annoying, shame he's a healer. Vette should be a healer instead like Mako.

Tanno Vik.
In an ideal Havoc Squad, I'd rather take the traitor Fuse than this guy.

The infamous ship's droid, you have to hate this fellow. He's my main (and actually only) target for the pure blood sith racial ability.

Quinn by miles due to spoiler reasons. Does not fit at all with the warrior's story. Wish one of the ladies was the healer.

What? I'm assuming you mean ambiguous, not androgynous.

Skadge, he's just an annoying thug who's really out of place on the BH crew.

To me, SCORPIO makes no sense as a companion. She has vowed to go to whatever lengths possible to kill me and there seems to be no point to keeping her around after Act Three ends (except being really hard to gear up and a worse Tank than Kaliyo).

I kind of feel like I got the short end of the stick on the Consular. Zenith and Iresso aren't even characters, they're just sticks that stand around on my ship. Not once during their lead up stories did I think, "Oh, this guy's cool, I'd love to have him come aboard and help me on my journey." Not. Once. I thought they were rather forgettable, to be honest, and then, out of the blue, they are suddenly a crew mate. Oh, I got that they were "supposed" to be cool, especially Zenith. But the idea was sort of just shoved down my throat, it felt forced and contrived. You can't just call a character cool, and suddenly they're cool. It doesn't work like that.

Their characters are underdeveloped during the lead up stage to you acquiring them as a companion. If I asked you to describe Zenith, based on what you knew about him BEFORE you progressed his companion story through affection, what would you say? "He's a freedom fighter." Uh, huh, and? "Um... he's a passionate freedom fighter?" Same with Iresso. "Lt. Iresso a commander in the Republic army." That's it. Is that really enough for me to develop a bond with these characters? I don't believe it is.

And then there's Nadia. The fact I receive the only potential love interest for a male Consular at level 42 (-ish, I couldn't solo the boss before then) is unforgivable. Her entire story, and romance, feels rushed. You gain so many affection points with her per conversation that you're constantly running back to your ship to advance her plot, and it just doesn't feel like a natural progression. She easily could have been added as a companion in the level 34-35 range, and I could have skipped Zenith altogether (or Iresso, or both, take your pick.)

Instead of Zenith or Iresso, I could have picked up a rejected Voss Mystic (who I could then train in the Jedi arts, perhaps? Sounds interesting to me) or perhaps converted one of the Children of the Emperor to my cause and added them to my list of companions (I'm no stranger to unconventional companions, after all.) I could have left Tython or Coruscant with a Padawan, there were several I met on my travels that actually had personalities. Or I could have taken Master Tykan's Padawan, Aris, from Taris. He was in no state to continue training her, and she had a motivation to come along (seek out those who wronged her master.) Lots of options, but instead I get saddled these two bland soldier/fighters.

Remember, if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.
