Luckily everyone can fly multiple ships of different role types, so your never shoehorned.
Any solo content is so ridiculously easy you could complete it without a single captain skill at all. The team aspect is all that matters from a balanced gameplay perspective. And yes, the end-game is heavily team oriented, regardless of whether you choose to partake or not.
Much like any MMO, if you roll into a group half-assing it with a Kirk mindset, you are going to be more a liability than an asset. I suppose we could just homogenize all the ships and make them equally capable in all aspects, cause that would be
