Ok, only been playing since about the last week and a half of beta so not 100% sure on how the skill tree works. I know the different skills affect my abilities, but do they also affect my BO's abilities too?

Currently I'm working on a tac officer in a heavy escort, and planning on sticking with escorts. Is there any point to me putting points in the science or engineering skills that say they boost abilities my Boff's use that I will never have. I'm assuming this is the case, hence I have been building this was so far, but if it isn't then I have just been wasting skill points

So can I get some confirmation on this please?

In short, yes.

In slightly longer, your captain skill tree abilities effect both your own and your BOffs' abilities. Also remember that spending all 9 points in some unlocks the ability to train a BOff of your career path in a lvl III ability (has to be one they could have lvl II of though).

ok, thought so, glad to know I'm not wasting points. And yes, I noticed that with the skill training too.

Thank you for the swift confirmation.
