# 1 Worth it to skill up to 9/9?
02-03-2010, 10:16 AM
I've noticed that as you level up your captain's skills the amount if points needed to move up increases, especially points 8 and 9 to max out a skill.

I'm wondering, is it worth it to max out skills to 9/9 or better to stop at 7/9 for most skills and use those points on other new skills?

Maxing out the skill gives you a higher rank skill. However sometimes being to spend into 4 different skills is more beneficial than maxing out 1.

Sometimes, the tooltip will say, "Learning all 9 ranks of this skill will allow you to learn: "RANDOM SKILL""

For instance, learning all 9 ranks of Heavy Escort Captain will allow you learn Attack Pattern Beta III.

Read it again. You don't learn it. You are actually able to teach it. To any Bridge Officer of that discipline. If I'm understanding correctly, with that, someone can trade you a (given your example) Tactical BOff, and you can teach that skill to that BOff and trade it back.

While on Spacedock 1 (Earth Spacedock), you can train another one of your officers in a skill that you are able tot each (by getting 9 points into certain skills). You don't use it yourself, it teaches one of your BOFs how to use it.

All "Train X skill" is directed towards a BO. After getting 9 points you can train the skill, but you cant use it with your character.

Do I have to max the LT level phasers to be able to add points to the LT CMD level phaser skills?

No, you can skip a lower level skill box completely. The only thing you have to do is spend "x" number of points to rank up.

After I got to where you wrote "7/9" my thoughts went to an unrelated topic.
