A useful one:

If you are confused by what skills affect what abilities and so forth, then when you are in space press P to open a list of abilities, then click on an ability you will see details to the right. Scroll to the bottom of the description and it will tell you all the skills that have an effect on that ability, so you know what to spend your skill points on.

Not so useful, but fun if you are bored:

If you unequip your weapon(s) and fight melee, then different combinations of attack 1 and attack 2 will result in various combo animations, for example 1-1-2 will make your character attack differently than 1-2-1 or 1-2-2, or 2-1-2 etc etc. One of these (I can't remember which right now) does the Kirk double fist attack.

EDIT: It turns out these actually do have various effects on combat, and are all nicely listed in a thread here already
