I've been wanting this trait to work since I first read about it. (Actually I originally thought it did, till I noticed a few months into gaming it wasn't.) Finally a human boff has the value it deserves. Go Humans!
In regard to traits though, I'd still like to see a more interesting Trait system revamp. I've had a couple devs tell me that it is something they'd like to do, but its not something they plan on in the near future. It would give us a lot more reason to make different characters, especially now that Ship skills are not Ship-Specific anymore.
