    Plan b got a reaction from Mark Caliber in [Attributes] Max of 6?   
    Haven't tried it.
     
    Did have a brawn seven marauder (5 base, one dedication, one cyberarm) in a game. Functionally difference between brawn 5-7 was largely irrelevant (he still was tough as hell and one hit killed most things )

    I suggest focusing on abilities that focused character simply can't do.
    Suggestion: Space wizard
    Spieces: Gand.
    Stats: 222231
    Career:commander Spec: instructor (although any which get discipline 2 will do), force emergent 20pts
    Talents: indistingishable, slight of mind, grit, touch of fate, force rating 75pts
    Force Powers: 55 pts i'd recommend move or influnce.

    I would.
     
    I'd further claim, scholars are pointless.
     
    Given there are 5-6 smart guy classes which are actually useful and know almost as much.

    Plan b got a reaction from DurosSpacer in Frustrated Scholar. Help!   
    The problem is he did pick a bad career. That is not players fault.
    Scholar is very specialized career which focus's on very limited role of limited use. This issue will be compounded by been force sensitive which is exp expensive.
    I'd suggest a rework and look at switching
    Archeologist offers simlair focus while having and more rounded (gets the well rounded talent as well) talent so they can be more useful the rest of the time.
    Or
    Sage (force and destiny). Again simlair focus, but more focus on the force (will also free up some exp for force powers.)

    While SEApocalypse does offer some excellent advice, soak 6 armour (assume a monster constructed using the custom armour rules) is something i'd avoid acknowledging the existance of, unless you want group wearing it.

    Blaster pistol and the aim manuver (maybe a couple of levels in skill). Bluntly combat doesn't really need a big investment, they'll mostly be up against 1-2 purples and maybe a black dice most the time

    Here's the thing.
     
    While there's plenty of ways to play this game, most of them are going to be do flying around in a tramp freighter, doing the firefly/han solo/ red dwarf thing.
     
    Agility, Presence and Willpower are good on almost every character. Even the  "most efficient murder machine" you seem to love spouting on about, still is going to value initiative and strain.
     
    I've seen players get annoyed at their underperforming fringers and scouts, so that's why i warn against them.

    Dump stats are still alive and well, in this game its normally intelligence (unless your playing a class the resolves around it), or brawn.Agility is the power stat, as it is in most modern rpgs.

    Increasing soak will only make the non repeater blaster wielders MORE useless.
     
    And use MORE MINIONS break them down into mini squads of 4-5 and use 3-4 of them. And remember to space them out, put them out of short range (move to cover).

    Nope by default fists are sh*tty weapons, your better off using anything else.
     
    However if your willing to build around it fist can be some, if not THE most, effective weapons.
     
    Brawn + Skill (deadly accuracy) + Medicine (pressure points also ignore ALL soak but does strain which is better) + feral strenght and you can also add force dice and frienzied attack to the skill check.
