I know I dont plan to train any engine powers for use in my escort but it seems I do want a healthy engine power level? I know that you recieve a defense bonus based upon your speed so it reasons that the faster the better. The skil is pricey to train at 400 a rank so I'm unsure as to what if any rank I should train it to. Hoping for some feedback before I train myself into a respec situation. Any help would be appreciated.

I do 9/9 on both efficiency and performance. But I usually run with the base power level of 25. You can still get the engine power with less points if you sacrifice power in shield power levels. Some players will run with shield power at 25, and engine power at 50.

For the details see my Beginner' Guide to Ship's Power (link is below in my .sig). To answer your immediate question. And a bit from a new guide I'm working on....

You''ll want to train up the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Engine Power Skills. Those skills being (in order) Starship Warp Core Training, Starship Engine Efficiency and Starship Engine Performance. Warp Core Training and Engine Effificent are Efficiency Class skills which give a Power Setting Bonus for lower power settings (i.e. 75 and below). The lower the power setting and higher the power bonus. Engine Performance is a Performance class skills. It gives a flat power setting bonus regardless of power setting. If you max out all three skills. You'll set your engine power up to around 48 or so. Add an Injector Assembly Engineering Console that'll put you into the mid 50s where the Hyper Impulse Engines start to edge out Combat Impulse Engines.

Running shields at power level 25 is not so good. You have NO regeneration at all. And it decreases the amount of shield damage resistance for the Shields. That's the amount of damage the shields themselves take. You can thing of the shield damage resistance as increase the damage capacity of your shields.

Yeah. Not something that I do personally. I just know that 'some' people do it that way. The people that I know that do that usually run EptS.
