When you get your ship in SW:TOR my experience has been that there is a droid on board who is exceedingly annoying. One supposedly useful thing you are told though is that there is an intercom that "...will inform your crew that you wish to issue new orders." However I have yet to notice any effect when clicking it (right or left!). Does the intercom actually do anything? If not are there rumors or expectations as to what is likely to be implemented for it functionally wise?

The Intercom, Holocommunicator, and the Escape Pod are all class-quest specific items that only have interactions when you're on a quest that requires interacting with them.

In the meantime, they're vaguely glow-y flavor for your ship.

Alas, C2-N2 will have to remain your as he is.

am I weird that I actually like C2-N2? I even use it to fight when I need a healer companion – Rodolfo Feb 10 '12 at 14:10
@Rodolfo Yes you are :P – Matthew Read Feb 10 '12 at 18:05
@Rodolfo: I can confirm this. You are weird for liking C2-N2. Or possibly you don't play with the voiceovers enabled. – Ingmar Feb 10 '12 at 18:20
awww, poor C2, he's so misunderstood. But honestly, it's a good healer until you get your real companion healer, and when he's an active companion, he doesn't even talk :) – Rodolfo Feb 10 '12 at 18:28
If you're visiting another player's ship, you can use the escape pod to return to the planet. – Argyle Feb 11 '12 at 0:14
