So far I haven't found any way, and it sucks, everybody having to walk to the flashpoint themselves. Bioware should have thought of something, like the summoning stone in WoW. I'm not saying I want SWTOR to have all the features of WoW, but a summoning stone should be quite obvious.

Are you serious? almost every flashpoint is centered around the main space stations for either side.

God dammit Bioware! I already have to walk to places in real life, I don't want to have to walk to objectives in a videogame! I demand a magic power to allow myself to teleport anywhere I want no matter how far away it is, or I QUIT!!!!! RAWR RAWR RAWR!!!!!

Yeah so? Somebody could be on a planet, far away from a base to fly to a flashpoint shuttle, with his teleport on cooldown.

No matter where you are, it is never that long of a walk to a base with flight paths. Which will very quickly get you back to a shuttle area. Also Quick Travel is only on a 30 minute cooldown, plus you get an Emergency Fleet Pass. PLUS if you get the extra security for your account, you can purchase MORE Fleet Passes, which have a 1 hour cooldown.

Yes it is pretty simple to get to a flashpoint, take a flight path to a flashpoint shuttle and enter, tada you're there, should only take a few mintues. However I doubt that's the case all the time, like the group I had yesterday in which I had to wait close to 10 minutes for. They could have been lost, or goofing around, but whatever the case, a simple summoning stone and everybody is there in seconds.

Also how do you get an emergency fleet pass? If it requires the extra security, not all players have that, I don't.

Granted, I'm only at Tatooine, but all the instances I've seen are a fair hike from the nearest speeder point, so you have to FIGHT your way there while everyone twiddles their thumbs waiting. There's no reason they couldn't make a beacon available for a shuttle to bring in a party member at the same vendor who sells fleet passes.
That would be an additional incentive to get the security code thing-a-mah-jig.
That way once you've spent half an hour spamming general chat for a healer, you can just pop a homing beacon and a shuttle picks em up and drops them off.

No kidding, last heroic I did, we waited a good 15 minutes for the last member to arrive, and that was AFTER I ran there.
Plus, if you don't have all the speeder points unlocked, YOUR"RE WALKING!
So nobodies asking for special favors, just make grouping (which is supposed to be a GOOD thing right?) a bit easier to do.

Yeah because no one waits to accept a summon. They are waiting with earnest to click "accept summon" instead of finishing what they started doing while they waited in the first place.

Everyone has the EFP; it's in your general tab under your spells. It has an 18h cooldown, but combined with the quick travel (which should 9 times out of 10 be off cool down) If you got the authenticator, you can buy extra passes on a 1h cooldown.

I must have missed something. Are you really complaining about waiting 10 mins?
I came into this world screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I plan on leaving it the same way.

It's usually longer than 10. Most of the time I see people spamming LFG for a good 30 even before they form a group.
