And my current main is a bit accidentally a Tac/Escort captain with assosciatedly narrow focus, and I have plenty of points because I have no use for more than 75% of the science and more than 50% of the engineering ship skills. Everyone needs the weapon skills to put out damage, and Tac BO powers scale off them (the maneuvers scale off escort command skills as the exception, but that still benefits escort pilots). So Tac/Escort gets the advantage of extremely narrow focus.

With my planned science/science main... not nearly so much breathing room, since every skill point spent on a science skill affects NOTHING BUT 2 or 3 assosciated BO powers. Even about half the engineering skills have some other utility.
