OK..how can we make money?

I am a ordinary nothing special Jedi..but i see it will help to have lots of money. Any suggestions? my skills are Treasure Hunting and Archaeology and Diplomacy which i figured might help in getting loot ...but it takes forever to assemble cash just looting bodies and doing quests.....any suggestions ...on the Light Side?

Don't depend on crew skills to make credits. Until you get them maxed out they will just cost you credits. The best way to make credit is just to play the game. Do the quest and kill stuff. As you gain levels you gain better drops giving you more credits.

Helpful! 
Better loot = more credits from selling it.
And don't make my mistake of training everything at once ..long story short - I bankrupted myself, had 33 credits left and couldnt even get a taxi to my ship. :P
And it really doesn't take that long to earn credits from just questing. I just plowed through tons of quests and made tons of credits...

You get quite a lot of credits just doing quests, looting every body and selling unused items.

Compared to WoW for example it is a hell of a lot easier, I had 90k when I was about level 23.
