Okay, I have been innocently asking, but this is where I am coming from:
I have recently levelled a Gorn sci in a Varanus. Gorn are "handicapped" for space combat in a sense because they have three pre-set ground traits, leaving them only one space trait to select... but I made it a point to select another ground trait. So, that space-combat-specialized Gorn now has not a single space trait.
And yet, he does not seem to be all that outmatched in space PvP. This is good, as it makes the much-requested re-trait tokens much less needed, and does not ruin space combat for ground-trait-equipped toons.
My own impression is that the space traits, while they seem to be helping slightly, pale in significance vs all the other factors, like doffs, gear, skills, etc. The exception being, of course, the two traits Elusive and Accurate.
I have long been saying that everybody should have both 4 ground and 4 space traits. If that was the case, then slightly buffing the other space traits would certainly be the way to go, while not ruining the fun for more ground-oriented species like Gorn or even the 2-ground-trait native Klingons.
However, with the current setup that makes Aliens the best space combat people, because only they can select 4 space traits, buffing the space traits would probably just put all non-Aliens at a disadvantage.
