At the first tier you shouldn't worry about skill allocation too much. You will spend skill points in all or most of them to level to the next rank.
Most players pick space or ground combat for skill picks (especially in PVP) but you can make a mixed build work.
The ship you fly after the first tier will determine your play style as much as your class- Escorts for spike DPS, Cruiser for healing and sustained DPS or the Science ship for disruption of enemy's and healing.
The game is easy enough for most people at normal difficulty that you can pick anything and get by- Go and experiment with stuff. As others have mentioned you can respec your skill points for free at any tier.
Check in the other areas of the forums for more advice.
Most build advice that you find will be for the top tier though.
