I tested out the skill points using http://sto-builder.binarybit.ch/ and found out that with the cap, it is utterly impossible to max out profession skills only. This is due to the combination of the cap in both points and limit in spending per rank. As a result, no one can spend points only on their preffessions specific skills but are forced to branch out into other areas. Not only that, but the maximum number of skill points you can get for T5 skills (which has the most skills) is 16. Please either remove the limit on rank spending or get rid of the cap.
