Spaceships are a key component in the Star Wars universe and in The Old Republic. Read our handy guide to everything a player will need to know about the basics of spaceships in the game.

When you receive your new ship, you also get a new companion – your ship’s droid. This droid companion is totally non-combat, but you can use him for other companion activities such as crew skill missions and crafting missions. You can view your new robotic buddy by opening up your character screen (C) and clicking on the Companion tab.

Another companion aspect of your ship is that new conversations will open up with your companions only onboard the ship. Your companions will man certain areas of your ship so make sure that you check them out regularly to see if they have a quest icon above them.
