I've had a change of mind here: why not uber? It's equal across the board. THAT is what they do, THAT skill set, so it should be uber compared to more well rounded PCs. The NPCs have trained in that skill only, thus, their occupation. In fact, it is better that say, melee fighters are faster, stronger, better than the PC, so that the PC doesn't have to wait on them, or wonder if he/she hits, if their team will hit. Basically, if the PC is able to attack, so does your squad (if you place the #s right). I'm OK with this now, at least it makes sense.
In this game, ah envisioned PCs as the commanders/leaders telling their troops who needs to get blowned up first, otherwise, why has Brom and Heek wasted their time working on elite forces of space marines and minja* (respectively) if they will still suck?
