    Makes me curious about the follow-up.

    One thing I would add is: Don’t think about what you can not do, think about what you can do.

    Many fleets can make use of a fast tackling frigate or a scout. You do not need to be able to fly fancy ships with high-skill fits for that. In fact, if your ship is cheap and mostly harmless chances are you will not be seen as a threat, especially if you are new in game. Communication skills and presence of mind are needed there, but skillpoints not so much.
