One thing to keep in mind though - in CO, all percentage boosts were based on the BASE number, not the end number.
In other words, let's say you had a 100 skill in something. And let's say you get a 20% boost to it, and another 20% boost to it from something else.
In most games, you'd have a total skill of 144 (100x1.2x1.2).
In CO, you'd have a skill of 140 (100x1.2)+(100x1.2).
The question in the end is which way are the numbers being added up? Since STO uses the same core engine as CO, I'm gonna guess the latter. But who knows for sure.
