Crew Skills and Missions Q&A

Ask A Jedi has posted up a Q&A about companion (crew member) skills and missions with Damion Schubert, Lead Systems Designer for Star Wars: The Old Republic. If you aren't familiar with the term, "Crew Skills are BioWare’s implementation for harvesting and crafting in Star Wars: The Old Republic." Most of the information is pretty general, but the biggest reveal is probably that crew missions will explicitly cost you virtual currency to undertake, with the cost being determined by the in-game economy.
