What is the real deal with "Techie" and "Starship Engineering Training"?

I think your point of concern may be slightly off, Combadge. You seem to be calling out Techie as a poor trait. I would suggest the problem is not with Techie, but with Starship Engineering Training. This skill should clearly affect all Engineering skills, just as Starship Operations (theoretically) affects all Science skills. If it does not, that would seem to be a problem.
However, many tooltips in STO are currently erroneous (I know of at least one example where the tooltip for one skill and another outright contradict each other), so I would not base anything on them. Just because an Engineering skill does not say it is modified by Starship Engineering Training does not mean it is so.
