Just as a note, more is not always better, because usually more of something means less of another thing.
In case of cruisers, Shield Power for example is also of concern.
Of course having maxed Weapon Power is nice, and when riding in an escort it's a no-brainer. But in a Cruiser, sometimes even 10-15 less power into Weapons diverted to Shields when getting aggro in Elite STFs do make a huge difference, and *you* are supposed to be the one keeping Cubes busy instead of Sci or Escorts anyway... (and the difference can be as huge as life or death, plain and simple)
Power profiles are there for a reason, and if you don't use and abuse them all the time, you are severely gimping yourself, even more in case of us Cruisers, which are always required to tank *and* do decent DPS at the same time when needed, while riding behemoths as maneuverables as sixteen-wheeled trucks...
