1. Do NPC's reduce player XP?
a. If I assign an NPC to pilot the ship I'm in (due to NPC's better Skill), will flying yield normal XP, 1/2 XP or none at all to my character?
b. Does having NPC's within my Party reduce the XP I receive while walking? Does it get reduced further with each additional NPC I add to my Party?
2. Why do players specify Pilot NPC's or Soldier NPC's when they sell them? Wouldn't it be better to show the NPC's skills?
3. Are players allowed to assign NPC skills when they are purchased or are they determined randomly? (For example, I want an NPC who can fly Freighters, shoot Projectiles, & Repair Droids. Would I want to purchase a soldier, a pilot, or a civilian NPC?)
