About the skill points, you can mix them (especially if you use phasers) but you will lose out on something. I usually take it out of my ground skills since I only space pvp anyways. It's not much like you pointed out though, nothing game shattering.
Bottom line, if you are only pve'ing then it's not a waste of time since almost anything works. If your serious about damage output and want to be competitive in pvp, then yes, it is a huge waste of time.
Sigh I should have known, another thread hijacked by the PvPers......
