So each of my three current characters has they're starting companion has a skin reward from their own respective missions. I already have said companion. However, the second requirement asks for something called "Crew Member Authorization". What is that and how do I obtain this?

1 Answer 1


The ability to use different skins for your companions is restricted to paying customers -- either by subscribing to the game or purchasing the "Crew Member Authorization" unlock from the Cartel Coin store.

  • @AndrewEckert There are indeed a few things that are quite annoying for F2P, but BW has to limit them somehow. The F2P model was created after a year so they either had to add a lot for subs or take away things from F2P. And companion customization is just an aesthetic in the end, it does not reduce performance for the player.
