Can anyone tell me if there is any benefit to taking a bonus to a captain skill, such as ones you get from reputation, if you've already maxed that skill to +99? For example the ground skill Weapon Proficiency, there is a bonus from Omega rep that gives the skill +30 but I've already brought it to +99.
I faintly recall a guildmate having done the calculations for ground combat - +30 Weapons Proficiency translates to a (roughly) 2.6% damage increase in case You had 9 skillpoints alloted to it already. I'd guess the same goes for Starship Shield Systems but I admittedly do not have the numbers here myself.
*edit* Looks as if the bonus to Starship Shield Systems from Tier 2 might be around 9% to a maxed-out skill: link

You wont see it in the skill tree, you need to pull up your character sheet and look under your stats there. The skill can go over 99, that's just the cap for skill points, with the bonus your skill will shoot up to the 120s.
