Yeah but in real life when people change careers they usually have to start over at the bottom... kind of like starting a new character.

I can understand the sentiment of wanting the option, but at the same time being able to totally respec/redefine your character at will sort of trivializes any "RPG" element there is, which really decreases the attachment you have to your characters in-game. It makes character selection a matter of finances and not gameplay (you have incentive to pick the right traits/specialization the first time, so you don't have to pay to respec later).

If you have only ever made it to LC 6, you haven't made it very far. Seriously I think you could start a new character and get back to LC 6 in an afternoon. On tribble with the faster leveling, you could literally do it in a couple of hours. I don't know how much you've played and when, but ever since the release of S4 and the new ground combat, missions go MUCH faster now because the pace of ground combat is a lot faster. Basically every mission only takes 50% as long now since you don't spend so much time shooting people on the ground.
