Speculations on the fate of your companions (KotEE)

The whole “reunite with your companions” makes me think they scatter after you get carbonized. Given that it takes you “years” to wake up, it’s not unlikely that they eventually stopped trying to find/rescue you and moved on with their lives. So what do you think they’ve made of themselves in the meantime?

Everything’s under spoilers for space:

Most of this is based on companion popularity (less-liked ones getting killed off, popular ones surviving), romance (all LIs survive the timeskip to avoid rage), and storyline possibility (those with potentially interesting storylines have a better chance of surviving than those who are there to give you your tank/DPS/healer). We're getting new companions, which is why I have a couple of healers listed as dead or potentially dead--losing them isn't the world-ender it once would have been if we just get another.

I wonder at what planets you meet up with them. I doubt it is going to be on the same planet you met them before.

I doubt even one companion is going to have a scripted, forced on the player death.
Even Vikk since he apparently has been voiced by Fred Tatasciore for ambiant dialogue ever since his original VA's death.
I mean, we are not in a new game, they will not force us to lose companions if we don't want to (Think crafting bonus, affection, gear, etc...).
You'll certainly have the possibility to kill/refuse to take back former squad members but I'd bet half of my credit stack that litteraly zero companion will have died during the timeskip. They'll all be liable to die after that, sure, but before? No chance.
They mention that our choices will have huge consequences, and companions are part of those.
I'm sorry but despite my sincere lack of interest for Rusk and T7 on my main (Knight), if I come out of cryosleep and I get told "They died, if you are unhappy then **** you and unsub, moron!", then you can be sure I'll count that as a huge fail for BW (Not that they will do it, I trust them enough for that.)

Apart from that "disgreement", if this was a linear story, for a solo RPG, some of your suggestions could work.

I want your love interest to be the one to set you free from carbonite!

I don't think they'll force any deaths on you, but I'd love to change up my crew! Especially Skadge off the ship!

Though being able to change up my crew will only make picking a main class even harder! O.O
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry
