I am sure maybe someone has brought this up before but science officers should get XP for using their science skills especially in space. Too often I have been using holds, scrambles and syphons on enemies and teammates come in and wipe out a weakened opponents as I get 1 XP or 2 XP points for my part in the job.
Who's with me? Who wants to be anarrow-minded jerk and say I should picked a different profession?
Competitive pve is a waste of time if you don't already have the most powerful weapons for your tier. All's equal in pvp. Even the losers walk away with almost as much as/possibly more than the winners.
