Well I cannot help you with crunching numbers, but I can give you some tips to help improve your skills.

For the most part skills affect abilities. Using the filter in the upper right corner of the skills screen will let you choose abilities. The skills that affect it will highlight in yellow. Obviously you would want to put skill points in there to boost the ability.

A good way to get the most out of your skill points is to pick one energy weapon type and one projectile weapon type and stick with it. If you have multiple types you'll need to put points into the various weapon type skills and that is sort of a waste. Stick to, for example, phasers and increase the phaser energy weapon ability to 9. Don't put skill points into any other energy weapon type. The same is true for projectile weapons.

You might also want to check out this Character Skill Planner. You can plan out your skills based on your abilities and other factors. It will highlight the appropriate skills in order to help you plan them out easily.

If you have more questions feel free to ask. If I think of anything else I'll let you know.
