Hmmm LtC runs to start out would be fine with me. My character is really close to leveling up to commander, and just doing explores for data will probably get him there soon. I'll be sure to keep that ship as-is though. If we all make sure to do that and level match to a LtC in the group, we should be okay. We forgot to do that last night and piwright ended up vaporizing people in one volley. :p
I don't think Marie should rush leveling, though. Learning pvp is *much* easier when there's fewer skill combinations to choose from at the beginning. I tried jumping into some upper level pvp a couple times, ughhhhhhhh it did not go well at all. This LtC guy seems to do okay, though.
