It is possible to "fake" multiple dialogues and a running conversation using hidden objects. You still don't have much of a choice, but it seems natural for conversations, because you can "Ask about Y" which triggers a specific popup or "Ask about Z."

I made a tutorial for this here: http://starbaseugc.com/index.php/sto...ues-the-cheat/

There are also benefits to not using contacts, but instead using a single npc from a friendly npc groups, and using hidden objects to act as conversations. Their default text still gives them a talk-to-me-symbol, but then you can add idle animations, chat animations, chat bubbles, and even animations to your own toon while interacting with the hidden objects.
