If you're just starting the game, it would be wise to level up your first character just as a money-gatherer. Do this by picking up Scavenging, Slicing and either Underworld Trading or Treasure Hunting. Sell all the stuff you get from Scavenging and only run Underworld Metals missions if you get Underworld Trading (the fabric missions aren't nearly as useful, profit-wise). Sell all the Underworld Metals you get.

Crew skills are surprisingly expensive to level up and are, in general, dismayingly useless except for making Augments at top-level (the exceptions being Cybertech and Biochem).

If you immediately start your first character making stuff and all your alts making *different* stuff, you will go broke very quickly, and won't be able to purchase your abilities as you level up.

Because of Cybertech and Biochem reusable items (grenades, and stims and adrenals respectively). Having the ability to have both is an unbalancing effect.

It is also a holdover from the crafting skills offering "top end" BoP gear (Rakata)

Car'beerd (Guardian) Dalkery (Scoundrel) Blairnah (Sage) Daellia (Merc) and 11 other characters

Not entirely true.
You can send stuff between any of your own characters, regardless of faction.
