Especially the damage resistance and extra hull for a science ship who has paper hull in the first place. If you have any intention of using damage reduction powers especially if they are applied directly to hull and not shields then these skills are useful. Plus I mean sci ships are base line more manueverable than cruisers base why would you want to have your sci ship turn slower than a cruiser and well slower than an escort just because they dumped their points into these skills and added a manuevering RCS Accelerator console to their ships? Also your manueverability directly impacts your starships defense rating. Why wouldn't you put the points in them it's a 100 each point?

In addition, why is everyone so concerned lately about charged particle burst that power really used to stink was there an update i missed on it?
Ok, let go back to basics. Those three area's I was asking about use only skills that you have access to if you are a tactical officer. So my question was why put points into those area's if you do not have the skills to utilize them.

Charged Particle Burst disables cloaking devises, so this can be a good tool against ship with the battle cloak.
