I get that profitablity is key in every spot an "unlock" is added, but this game is the worst example of nickle and diming in the F2P market.
Hardly. There are some odd choices for monetization but you clearly have NO idea how ridiculously monetized some other MMOs are, particularly Korean MMOs. Many other MMOs in the F2P market will blatantly sell power because they can.

There is a full RPG, with 8 stories, for ZERO cost, that can be played in SWTOR. Bioware has chosen to put cost on some of the convenience and QoL options. But as the worst example? Not really. Its not even close. You can't even qualify that statement. I admit I cannot pull out screen shots from some of the more monetized F2P MMOs, so I am going to have to ask you to take my word for it.

Also, you need to look up what nickel and diming actually means.
"to expose to financial hardship by the accumulation of small expenses." -thefreedictionary.com
"the undesired price of upkeep for a certain item" -urbandictionary.com
"to treat (as a person or situation) by paying excessive attention to small amounts of money often with a detrimental effect" - merriam-webster.com

I don't think that anyone could fairly say that this is the worst game when it comes to monetization. I would, however, perhaps contend that it seems many folks that would be among the potential players for this game see this as one of the worst in the current US MMO market.

Or, more accurately, probably one of the most draconian when it comes to a few of the restrictions. Very general and speculative, naturally.

And those apply to SW:TOR how exactly?

Are we being exposed to financial hardship by the accumulation of small expenses from the game?
Is there an undesired price of upkeep on certain items in the game?
Are they treating us by paying excessive attention to small amounts of money with a detrimental effect?

And I'm talking real money here, not in-game credits.

As far as I know, there is nothing that you HAVE to buy from the cartel market.
There's fancy stuff there for sure, but it can all be bought through the GTN as well for in-game credits.

I think the nearest you could come to claiming to be nickel and dimed is the monthly sub fee.
But have fun trying to push that line on the forum...

Oh and you avoided my question, so I'll post it again:
Exactly what will people HAVE to pay cartel coins to unlock when it comes to the strongholds?
Apparantly I have multiple accounts. And apparantly I argue with myself on those accounts.

There are bathrooms on the Quick Travel shuttles. That's the main reason I bought the cooldown reduction - I am getting old.

I think they're the way they are in firefly

They fold into and out of the walls in your spaceship

I think BW forgot to label them then.
