Maxing Warp Core Training is connected to power calculation. As I've linked in my OP the excellent power calculation guide, if you plot your skillpoints across Warp Core Training, <SYSTEM> Efficiency, and <SYSTEM> Performance, you can net yourself a lot of power.

This is how I manage to get 50 effective shields from a setting of 25.

This is also how a lot of players can somehow avoid being completely drained when hit by Energy Siphon + Tyken's Rift, the two power-draining powers, along with Beam: Target tactical powers.

I personally can get 75 weapons, 50 shields 50 engines and 100 aux on my science vessel
