Does the Efficient Captain (and Efficient Boff and Efficient skills) get calculated before ship/equipment bonuses?

I.e. supposed I have enough Engine Efficiency to give me +5 at 25 power. But I have equipped a module that gives me +5 engine power. Would my total engine power be 25 + 5 from efficiency + 5 from the module, or would it be 25 + 3ish from efficiency (due to actually having 30 engine power before the calculation) + 5 from the module?

Pretty sure all power efficiency bonuses work from the base power setting, so if you have engine power set at 25 and you get +5 with efficiencies, and you then add a console to give +5 power to engines, your total will be 35 for engine. Not 30 plus your efficiency bonus.

FYI a subsystem set at 25 base power setting, with max efficiency skilled boosts power up to 50, even more I think for engines if you have "efficient at low power" ones equipped.

25 extra power? Are you sure about that?

I could swear I read somewhere that if you max out an efficiency skill it gives you a total of about +9 power at 25 with all 9 ranks trained. Even with captain/boff skills you'd only get that up to like 15 max.

Did I misread that?

I have my engine power set to 25 base power, but its effective power level is just barely over 50. I have the following bonuses:

Joined Trill w/ Warp Theorist Trait
Warp Core Efficiency rank 9
Warp Core Potential rank 9
5 efficient Bridge Officers
Assimilated Engine

With warp theorist captain and efficient captain traits, Warp core potential and efficiency at 9, sub system performance skills at 6 and with KHG engines (bonus efficiency except to engines) my Aux level is 54 I think off the top of my head (from a power setting of 25).

I'll have to double check the exact level but it's over 50, that's before leech is introduced.

Could go higher if I had efficient Boffs slotted
