if you're a concealment operative you need to be able to backstab whenever its off cooldown. so having a tank companion like kaliyo can help if you take her taunt ability off autocast and you control when she taunts. this lets you backstab if you happen to get aggro, which you probably will because your dps will be a lot higher than your companion's

I have her in tank gear, in tank stance, and she's about as tanky as a wet paper bag...so yeah, pretty useless I'd say.

Gear them up in equivalent gear, and they are all the same. The only difference is between Ranged Tanks and Melee Tanks, in that they hold the enemies in different places.

I prefer Melee tanks, but that has nothing to do with who's who.

Also, be aware that you can't gear SCORPIO past crafted gear, unless you're willing to spend 600k-1.5mil on each individual armoring on the GTN. Kaliyo, at leat, can still wear Tionese-Campaign Bounty Hunter gear.
eh? modable droid bits are fairly easy to find so scorpio is as easy to set up as the others albeit with the added cost of extracting mods from tionese-campaign to go in them

It doesn't really bother me that she is useless combat-wise. It is just that she is by far the most annoying and despicable companion story-wise of all classes (not to mention completely inappropriate for the given class and not to mention you are stuck with her almost until Tatooine).
Jedi: You won the day, Sith. So, kill me if you must.
Warrior: I must.

Well I made a tread in "story and lore" some time ago and it was/is quite popular.
