Exactly. Combine the ship captain skills and the weapon type skills and refine the descriptions for all powers to say exactly what they do, and you're done.

Yup... which is exactly opposite of what was said just earlier this year, that gear wasn't going to be the be-all, end-all.

I also have the feeling that they wanted this nerf to make it so that the brand new F2P'ers that join will be more on par with us once they hit VA (I see massive leveling bonuses coming our way for the first month or 2 to encourage them to hit VA faster, which means they'll also be more inclined to buy c-store ships, since there won't be enough time to refine enough dilithium to buy a real ship).
