It's hard not to look at it this way at times:
Folks like blowing crap up. Zippy fast ships are cool.
Okay, let's start with what kind of character would be good at blowing crap up. Tactical.
Okay, let's add the kind of ship that character would fly. Escort.
Hey now, let's add a character that can help that guy blow stuff up and even keep them alive. Science.
Hrmmm, guess they need a ship to fly as well. Science Vessel.
Well, we should probably give players three choices. Let's throw what's left into a career choice. Engineer.
Meh, suppose we need to give them a ship to fly as well. Cruiser.
That oozes awesomesauce, am I right? We've got guys in zippy ships blowing crap up and the guys doing their Bill Nye shizzle to help them out. Perfect.
What about those other guys? You know...those guys?
Well, we can just make the content so easy even they can do it. Right?
Sounds like a plan!
