Question is;

In the Skills under Lt Commander, do I really need to have any points in the Cruiser Captain slot? This slot says nothing about it being useful for higher tier Cruisers. The next two Cruiser slots, (Starfleet Commander and Starfleet Captain) both say that 50% of those skills will go to the next slot.

So, If the first flot under LT. Commander isn't carried upward then do I really need it at all?

Think of it this way, for every level of "cruiser" expertise you have (Cruiser, heavy Cruiser, Exploration, Cruiser) 50% of THAT level is carried up as a bonus for the next higher level. So you will get : 50% Cruiser, 50% Heavy Cruiser, 50% Exploration cruier.... and so on.

That being said, it might not make a difference for much longer. The skills tree as being tested in F2P has removed ship expertise completely. Odds are, you need only worry about it for the next two months.
