Your disagreement seems to be based on nothing relevant.

That's the problem: you're approaching this from an outdated class-based ideology of roleplay. Star Trek was never about what class a captain is. A captain is a captain. I dislike cookie-cutter builds too, which is why I advocate buffing the abilities that need them so that variety and diversity is encouraged.
