The M.A.D. (multiple attribute dependency.) of sci officers is the worst in the game but still not bad. If your first three ranks in any skill get 54% of the bonus and the next three ranks take you up to 84% of the bonus very few things need to be maxed out.

The Teir 4 tac abilities are worthless to a Fed sci and more than 6 ranks into any energy level boosting skill is pretty redundant so there's a lot of points that won't be spent off the bat. I'd even go so far as to advise new players against putting more than 6 ranks in any skill pass teir 3. If you don't build your characters to fly a certain ship a certain way it's real easy to seriously screw yourself.
