If you log out and back in, it fixes this issue.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

What issue?

Because logging out and back in doesn't permanently fix either of the issues people have pointed out in this thread.

I would like to see a fix to this as well.

Related but even more annoying is that if you're in a group or OPs group and no where near anyone else in the group (even another planet) this still happens.

I believe he's talking about a different issue. Sometimes after you drop a full group your companion remains unable to deploy, even manually, and the icon indicates full group. Log out and back in fixes this.

Oh! I've seen that too. But the way I fixed that, is by summoning an alternate companion through the Crew Skills/Companion window. That has always worked for me.

If you're in a group, your companions will disappear and you'll have to continually resumoning him, even when he is your third or fourth team member. Pain in the arse in FPs. I frankly believe they are all related to the same bug.

I've had that work sometimes and not work sometimes. I've also had ctrl+u x2 work sometimes, but not others. Relog is the most reliable a fix, never had that not work.

No, I am talking about the issue where your companions randomly don't automatically come back when you get off your speeder. If you log out and back in, its 'fixed'.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.

No more fixed than me resummoning the companion. As it is "random", at least in my experience, relogging doesn't stop the issue from popping up.
