Yeah I think you're right. So if you're already happy the way your ship moves, speed and agility of the movement - don't spend points on the ship skill, cause next ship will have its own skill in tree again. I sometimes feel like I am wasting points because in quite a few sub-trees those skills don't count towards the later ones.

I mean there is a requirement of the skill points spent to earn the next rank, but skills themselves don't have those requirements, like for example higher tier skills don't have a prerequisite of how many skill points you need to spend in lower tier skills. its all about rank. As soon as you spent overall enough skill points new rank unlocks and you get access to all of the skills of that rank.

No, the skills for a given ship type imply they affect all higher refinements of that type.

would also be helpful if we knew exactly how much better you would be with the skills.

for instance I have invested 7 levels into the "science vessel movement" box but I have noticed absolutely nothing different. I guess we wouldnt know if it was broke or not without having the exact numbers displayed in front of us.
