Now, maybe "Starship Engine Efficiency" affects Emergency Power to Engines past rank 6, but I wouldn't know because I think Emergency Power to Engines is a waste as an Engineer piloting a Cruiser class vessel.

So there's a tip to any of you skilling up "Starship Engine Efficiency" for the boost to EPS Power Transfer. Don't rank it up past 6. I won't get my points back until they implement a Skill Point reset option
Did you see any improvement in Engine power levels? If your engines aren't set to a high level, the efficiency skill will also improve those, but we don't know where the breakpoints are, so there might be no benefit there after level 6 either, depending on your power preset for engines.
