With over 50 million skillpoints, I can fly a lot of ships. In fact, in the Caldari lineup I can fly every combat ship with the exception of the Titan (skill book too expensive and a ship I'll probably never own), and Marauders (but I have all the prerequisites so I could fly one in less than an hour).
Oh, and one other combat ship eludes me. Tech II destroyers, the Interdictor class.
You see, when I was developing my skill plan and had achieved Tech II frigates like Assault ships and Interceptors it was the time that Heavy Interdictors were being announced and I was faced with a decision: train up the dead end skill of Destroyers V followed by Interdictors, or train up Cruisers V which opens up all the Tech II cruisers and go for Heavy Interdictors.
"I'll go back and get that skill later on," I told myself about Destroyers. Yet here is it years later and I'm still only at Destroyers III.
I feel a little guilty. Poor little Flycatcher gets no love from the hardcore Caldari pilot. But there is always something else to train first....
The other night when flying with the corp and seeing Greyhound in his Flycatcher ready to launch bubbles to snag the unawares, I paused a second to look at that ship and think to myself "I really should train that ship." I checked EVEMon and it would only take 15 days to get up to spec.
Sigh. Decisions decisions.
