I know what Starship Command is and how applies to all ships, and same that Escort/Cruiser/Science Vessel Captain counts for their respective types. But what about skills like Research Science Vessel Captain or Exploration Cruiser Captain? What's the point in getting them if they only apply to their specific tier ship?
If they only apply to that tier, the advantage goes away when you move up, and that's skill points that could have gone into Torpedo Weapons or Science Probes. I hope I'm wrong and it still actually applies to their type regardless of tier.
