Warp core theorist is a good choice because the +10 to warp core potential fill give you a flat power level boost across the board. with 9 points into it that make your potential at 109.

The more noticeable traits are the ones that give you a % bonus. If you look at Accuracy for example it gives you 10%. This is the Equivalent of one [Acc] modifier added to all your weapons. Starship targeting systems under tactical only gives you 15% when fully spec'ed. Combined it is 25% because it stacks with no diminishing returns.

Another one to consider is elusive. it gives a 10% defense bonus. it operates the same way as Accuracy.

Alien is your best choice if you want only space abilities and don't care about ground.

The joint trill is a good space ability while you are leveling up but is not noticeable when you get up there. But if you play a lot of ground it can be very noticeable. Hyper metabolism Gives you toxic and radiation damage resistance as well as 0.1 heath regen. the best regen tribble (yu) only does 0.02.

On my joint trill I also gave him mental discipline and stubborn. With those abilities I hardly ever get knocked down or stuck. Usually I can run anywhere I want to in a map with out worry.

On ground though this is where Alien shines again. For ground if you choose aggressive, creative, Peak health and soldier then they will stack/combine for +10-15% damage, +15% max hp, +10% crit sev, +10 toxic resist and +5% threat gen. I did this on an engineer for use with the enemy neutralization kit.

The traits are more favorable to ground play and have a larger impact there. Of course that is assuming you like ground.
Thank you for a very informative post.

I want to create a Tactical character and wasn't sure between getting a Joined Trill or selecting Alien with Accurate, Efficient Captain, Elusive and Warp Theorist. I just don't want to regret not having any ground traits later on.

Personally I'd sway away from Efficient Captain... you simply won't need it if you're planning on flying an escort. You'll plug a majority of your points into weapons, then between engines and shields. Escorts already get a +15 to weapons standard. Keep in mind, Efficient doesn't boost anything that goes beyond 75. I've found my escorts are fine around 125 (weapons) 80 (shields) 60 (engines) ?? (Aux)... and this is off a toon w/o Efficient Captain. Unless you never plan to play ground then you're fine with no ground traits. But you're making an alien, so many options. If I were to make an alien tact right now I'd personally take Warp Theorist, Elusive, and Soldier standard. Possibly Lucky or Covert as my final choice depending on character concept. But, flavor to taste, gl with your new toon

Most of my characters are Joined Trill. I like anything in the game that gives improvement to many stats and helps to create a balanced build.
