If you've played KOTOR, its makes Taris a bit more awesome.

There are 3 types of "Crew Skills":
Crafting: The actual combining of items to make an item.
Mission: Send your companion out on a mission, they return with crafting materials.
Gathering: While you are running around the planets you can gather from nodes that correspond to the gathering type you chose. Gathering also has Missions that you can send your companion on.

Crew skills level automatically as you use them. Mission and Gathering skills will get new missions as you level them, 6 different tiers, missions added automatically. Gathering skills will allow you to access higher level nodes (so you should level these as you level). Crafting skills level as you use them but you have to learn new recipes. You buy this from your trainer, and some can be obtained from using schematics.

In my opinion, crafting is fairly worthless after 50, except crafting for alts who are not yet 50. This is supposed to change with the new tier that you can remove the set bonuses on. and put into [crit] crafted orange gear.

If you are going to wait till 50 to craft, I would suggest picking up 3 gathering skills.

When you start getting the "you need to complete some missions before starting this mission" (not the exact wording) you have to make room. I think they need to increase the cap, but it might be ok now that you can drop some of the other quests.
Personally when I am done with a planet, I make sure to drop any uncompleted missions from that planet.
