Hi, my name is Arkondrius Ray`Dur. I am a Duroian Pilot for the Rebel Alliance. I have a skill of 5 in my Freighter/Fighter Piloting skill. After I gain enough experience to advance to the level of 2. I reviewed my character sheet to see how my skill points it would take to advance my skill of 5 to a skill of 6 in Freighter/Fighter piloting. I discovered that there is no way to advance from 5 to 6. In the rules it says that the max of any skill is 6. So why can't I upgrade my skill?
There is of course the possibility that stat modifying items (items, weapons, droids, etc.) will give a boost even to people that have a skill rating of 5 in some particular category. However, that boost wouldn't be recognized in a new skill level.
