I recently acquired some CP droids. Edited By: Kuro Neko on Year 8 Day 51 8:24
At creation, some droids were assigned to me, some were not (probably because they were same type as ones already assigned to me ...??) I had to assign these droids to myself so I could add them to my party.
The droids also take up passenger slots on my ship, and take up cargo space.
Edit: It was just announced on Sim News that the assignment 'bug' has been fixed
