How much do skills like heavy escort captain add? The description is rather obtuse and says +52 at level 9, is this +52% hull, turnrate etc?

Incidentally, do these skills stack, i.e. Cruiser, Heavy Cruiser, Advanced Cruiser and so on?

Only the generic ones stack. So Cruiser Mastery works for all Cruisers, while heavy Cruiser Mastery (dunno the exact name) only works for Heavy Cruisers, and NOT for the ones you get later on. It's worth to note though, that they boost the according class skills, too. So All Escort Trainings improve your Tactical Officer abilities (if you happen to be one), all Cruiser skills boost your Engineer skills (if you are an engineer), and the same goes for science.

not sure how the numbers break down but it's not 52% at least in the case of the captain skills

Assault cruiser has a base hull of 39000 hp, with 4 points in the skill it only goes up to ~43k for the +30 bonus. 4k is not 30% of 39000

Found this with my Science vessel too. I'm up to about 32,000 hull from 27,000 with about 6 or 7 points into Deep Space Science vessel.

Yeah, this is something I'm planning to look into - on my list for a future article at The Engines Cannae Take It!

I'll be sure to post an update to this board when I get around to it.

BigBadB - a note of thanks for your effort on your site, it has helped me quite a bit.

An all-encompassing guide to player skills broken down by class type is what we need.

What points sunken into each skill affect what EXACTLY on each ship type/class (even when cross-trained), if you you know what I mean.

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more, say no more...
