As for having a dedicated department, sure everyone might receive basic training in piloting a starship, but their is a difference between basic and advanced training.
Spot-on, IMO. Same in all walks of life and in all fields of work - that some basic tasks can be mastered by most people doesn't negate the need for specialist experts. I mean, I can prepare a basic meal with a microwave, kettle and toaster, but doesn't mean that trained chefs are an obsolete profession.
