Can I gain the 'trust points' with a companion, dismiss them, and recruit them again later when I'm ready to trigger their quest
It is possible to gain points with a companion and wait to complete their quest at a later date...
This has been known to happen with companions other than ED-E. I wouldn't go as far to say...
