Using Crewman as a kind of boosted default for anything routine on a ship sounds quite reasonable. I was about to suggest it until I saw your post.

I love skills that reduce the risk of dreaded skill bloat too common in 3rd edition.
Beware, poor communication skills. No offense intended. If offended, it just means that I failed my writing skill check.
