Are they in your party as opposed to a squad to made up? Only on Derra do squads attack (although I do not know if they show up on the attack page). NPCs in your party definitely show up in your attack page.
A combat event appears for squads (on Derra) when they have attacked/been attacked and the members of the squad appear in the same way as they would do if they were included in your party.
As everyone has concluded, if only you appear then no one else is included in your party and in that case you are going to take all the damage and as such you probably won't survive many battle rounds!
