So this will be my third character overall (my first two are a starfleet tactical and kdf tactical officers respectivly, and both currently lvl 50) BUT it will the first character that I've ever really put some serious thought into with regards to building and skill point allocation.
With that being said, are there any suggesitons as to which skills I should concentrate on as I'm building the character? I've also read (on more than one occasion) that maxing out skill points in a given skill may not be the wisest move.
That gives you a good rundown of what your skillpoints get you for your investment. Most of the time going to six will be enough, a few skills might benefit from getting maxed out depending on what you're going for.
