Any comment on the efficiency trait?

If you set the power of a subsystem to 25 and equip or unequip a Borg BO, it changes by one power point. Any power setting above 25, equipping and un-equiping has no real affect. I continue to point this out in every thread I see that revolves around traits, one even got a dev response that they will look at it. I don't understand as the trait has no useful benefit. +1 power or a percentage of 1 power is not useful.


The efficiency skill was super nerfed during the great skill revamp during F2P transition.

According to STOWiki the forumal is this:

SystemPowerBonus = (SystemEfficiency/300) x (75 - SystemPowerLevel)


So an efficient Captain which gives +10 efficiency gains the following:

SystemPowerBonus = (10/300) x (75 - SystemPowerLevel)
at 25 power: +1.6 power - which is rounded down in the UI to 1.
at 50 power: +0.83 power - which is rounded down in the UI to nothing.
at 75 power: +0 power


An efficient BOff which gives +5 efficiency gains the following:

SystemPowerBonus = (5/300) x (75 - SystemPowerLevel)
at 25 power: +0.83 power - which is rounded down in the UI to nothing.
at 50 power: +0.41 power - which is rounded down in the UI to nothing.
at 75 power: +0 power

725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?
