...You might want to add a Battlecruiser and Carriers field.
Ask and ye shall receive. STO Power Calculator 2.0 is in final prep and it includes rich and creamy Klingony-goodness (uh, wait, maybe I'm confusing the Klings with Twinkies... Hmmm...)

I really appreciate your suggestions and bumps/sicky signature votes. Heh. I'll see what I can do about communicating with an admin. I completely re-wrote the opening post. I'm now concerned it's too much info . I also updated the calculator, adding Klingon ships by request, added some comments, and I think spruced it up a bit to make it easier to read. I welcome your thoughts.

Transparency is a key to making good decisions! Efficiencies traits (either captain or BO) help the Efficiency skills, and those only help powers at or below 75, closer to 25 the more effective. So in Attack Mode, with Weapons being at 100, they get zero. Shields at 50, actually did get 0.45 points, which isn't displayed. But the two preset at 25 get about 0.8 each, enough to push each up a full point on the display. So yeah, they aren't much help.
I changed my first post, but thought I should keep the original for historical purposes. So here's my thread starter as it was when originally posted 05/06/10 at 5:24p (PDT):

Just fill in the green fields on the first page with your own character's current stats, or what you'd like their stats to be, and you can see how it will affect your ship's power levels.
I have plugged my two characters' stats into the sheet and it matches perfectly. After tinkering with settings, I plan to respec my RA5. And now I have a road map for how to spec my Cmdr1 toon. You can see them as samples in the sheet (bottom tabs).
