Consider the path to escort captain. Starship Command applies to all ships, so that's easy. Escort Captain applies to all escorts, so that's also easy. But what about Tactical and Heavy escort? Last time I checked there was nothing in the text to indicate that skills 1-2-3-4 in that line form a cumulative benefit. Rather, it suggests that only 1-2-4 are applied at tier 4, and 1-2-5 at tier 5.
That may not be the case but it's difficult to tell. And if it is the case, then certainly there are whole boxes that are basically wasted once you pass that tier.
Yes, this is exactly what I am talking about
And I wish they'd make those classes/ships useful later on as well.
