Actually what is more likely is you crippled your character by bypassing content.
It's more likely that you have no idea what you're talking about because you're not an Admiral yet.
16 skill choices at Admiral, for 171 choices. Heck even removing the 5 other ships you won't be using it's still 16 choices out of 126 at Admiral for a total of 12% of the skills.
This is the reason they didn't auto level people to Admiral in the End of Open Beta event like they did at the End of Open Beta for Champions. To many people would have found out how low the skill cap is. They have only mentioned it in 1 interview on Ten Ton Hammer. Everything previous to that was "Hey we are capless!"
