One doubt, when we take some datacrons with the main character, we get the datacrons associate to alts too or we need to get them again with the alts ?

Every character must get its own datachrons to gain the matrix shards and attribute benefits.
Ah, yes. "Reapers."

How do you do this I mean turn off the indicators of the light side or dark side.

Hmmm... I am currently on the wrong OS since I am at work, but I think there is a checkbox "prompt for alignment point gain" which is usually checked, you need to uncheck it. I think it's under dialogues or social or so in the settings.
Ah, yes. "Reapers."

It's not just Sith Inquisitors that have this problem.

There are a number of choices where the outcomes are either not consistent, illogical or just plain daft.

Many of the Dark Side choices seem to be shooting yourself in the foot (destroying valuable resources or something to cause the deaths of Empire citizens that could help fight the Republic)

There are also Light Side choices that are just as suspect.

And as a light side toon, how do you justify killing anything that moves in order to gain experience or loot?

As an example of illogical choices:

I never had any problem when choosing LS/DS options in most of my toons, except for my inquisitor. And I'm not talking just about them being illogical, but also most of the times they're just...so stupid funny!

You see, I've read a lot about how evilly corny was a dark-side sith storyline. Then when I played a full dark-sided pure-blood juggernaut, I found it was very entertaining. Sure, there were a couple of funny lines but overall, I felt great to be a dark lord of the sith! I really enjoyed playing it.

But my inquisitor doesn't feel right at all: choosing dark options made me feel like a freaking psychopath ( -insert evil genius laugh here- ), and the light options most of the times doesn't make sense.

I don't know, but sometimes I feel the writers made the whole inquisitor storyline based on that popular character from the Stephen King's novel: "IT" the psycho killer clown.

Really? when it comes to my LS Inquisitor. (at least from a RP perspective) those Light side choices that cause harm to the empire are entirely INTENTIONAL!

You see My inquisitor has no real loyalty to the empire which is a realization that is actually supported by one of her earlier dialogue pieces. (prove myself or die) She HATES them and why wouldn't she? all evidence points to the idea that if this were an ideal world, she would be off enjoying her new found freedom. not serving the whims of the people who are responsible for her original status as a slave in the first place! (any further elaboration on that point would be a spoiler)

which ties into her comment to Andronikos that she would rather be a pirate then a sith.

Therefore it makes worlds of sense that while she accomplishes whatever tasks she is assigned, she completes them on HER OWN terms. and if in doing so her actions cause harm to the empire? Well She does not care, nay she takes PLEASURE in the knowledge that she is in the long run, doing for the empire more HARM then good!

This is a really interesting discussion! I recently got to level 50 on my LS Inquisitor and found some of the same struggles, especially as my journey made its way to planets like Corellia.

While I certainly don't want to give anything away (and holy cow is it hard!), when a dialogue option was in question, I found it fun to hunker down even more deeply into the personality I had in mind for my Sorc when she was created. Much like the OP here, compassion is natural to her. However, she also felt much as GloriousMelody describes above: The Empire has done little to earn her loyalty. Because of these two things, it rarely felt more right to give a response that was officially dark side, but those times were so beautifully fitting to her and didn't bother me at all. Also, the end of the story made me happy I'd done so!

So, I'd personally say to not allow for deviation from principles just to keep alignment "consistent", because she can always make up for it by requesting that Drellik spend some quality Mission Crew Skill time doing good.

Just my two credits.
