It is kinda a choice in this game whether you want to spend your preciouis points on ground or space abilities - but the choice becomes negated once you enter the min/maxing territory. It is easy to avoid ground or space combat if you don't care about one of them. Exploration Missions of the wrong type? Just warp out. PvP? Just select the Queue you're interested in. Fleet Actions? pick the type of action you like and do that.

The only situation where you can't do that are the reuglar storyline missions. But - they aren't that hard at normal difficulty. Even if you're forced to do ground when you're specced into space or vice versa, you'll do fine. (If you're specced for ground, you still have lots of skill points over to spend on space abilities.)
