Yes, but I don't think that stuff affects sector space. I think I tried that myslef ages ago, but there was no difference. And if you pay attention to your power levels, you'll notice that in sector space you don't even have the bonus power enhanced by skills, Boffs or gear.
Only the Driver Coil skill, with certain Engines* effects your speed at Warp.
Power Levels have no effect on Warp Speed.
And I think Engines should only effect sub-warp speeds and that the Warp Core should effect above Warp Speeds.
*As far as I know only the Borg and MACO/Adapted KHG allow you to exceed Warp 9.97.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001. If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why. When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.
