With this many ships and just 3 captain types to max out their available potential, things like this are bound to happen. I imagine sometime soon we might see a tac captain specialize in or "minor in" a certain sci trait or engie trait. and visa-vis. You can do that now, but to a less focus'd extent.
Players should streatch the idea of what the find acceptable or "appropriate" to fly.
If any tac captain has not experienced the greatness of the recon sci, they are missing out.
If any sci captain has not flown the exelcior, you may want to try that out bro.
Or an engineer in the advance escort with the mvae module.... Drool.
Let's mix it up and have fun guys! If we all go for the most powerful combo to win instead of having fun, well idunno. Fun is why I'm here, you guys?
