yes if all companions would be non holo that would be great too, I`d love to set up a brawl zone for Skadge/Khem Val and Broonmark or an imperial meeting room with Quinn, Pierce, Raina, Lokin, Talos or small place for Vette/Mako/Ashara/Kaliyo to hang out together

I don't have a problem with this at all because I never expected otherwise. It would be a little weird to have them all in the same place without any interaction, which would be impossible, of course, since they're all us, lol. The only point would be backdrop for rp or group photos and that's a lot of work for a picture/backdrop..

Between this and the astonishment that legacy cargo doesn't come free with the stronghold, I'm kind of curious about where these expectations came from.

Just do it like that, except intentionally instead of a bug.
Well, because of the Hooks you'd probably have to log it out in a specific spot in the room - but even that would be much better than nothing at all.

Hopefully they can upgrade our alt companions to full fledged down the road. Would be much more fun that way. (My dreams of a man harem are shot!) But hey, having any full fledged companions is far better than all holograms!

I'm also disappointed that Companions will only show up as holos if you visit on a different character. I love the idea of having Companions in my Strongholds; holos, not so much. And if it is suggested that Companions be used to display gear, a holo just isn't the same! And doesn't show off those pretty, expensive dye modules, either. >.<

It isn't as though Nadia and my Consular can be out adventuring somewhere when I'm logged onto my Knight, so I really don't see why they can't be displayed (fully). And heck, we will be able to use mounts that are on display in our Stronghold.
yeah it would be nice to be able to get all your toons in the same house.

And the "just for fun" question -- which companions do you get to see [in holo form]? Like, if I have two Sith Warriors, can I show both Vettes, do I have to choose, or is there a separate "Stronghold Vette" that only exists if I have at least one Sith Warrior, but that I can clothe/decorate independently from their separate per-alt customization/equipment?

HUGE missed opportunity. Very disappointed that our alts can't be chilling at the stronghold. Also they keep showing NPC's patrolling but they show the npcs only standing there and say they can only stand there. Which is it? Very frustrating.

It would be "Stronghold Vette" not toon specific Vette.

From I they talked that I still can dress Vette (or any other companion for that matter) still outside the stronghold and place her there then wearing the Mission Vao outfit for example that my Vette on my Juggernaut is wearing, but not the Vette on my Marauder, so if I can place just one vette it still would be a specific one, not a general one that we cannot customize.

Why are the companions holos anyway? They (virtually) exist, they hang arround with my character and in my ship. Why not in my strongold!?

There is no need for a holographic replica of them.
