It appears that with Kronos, CCP will be reducing the level of Anchoring skill prerequisite to Starbase Defense Management, from Anchoring V to Anchoring IV. Anchoring V is about 12 days training beyond IV, on a skill with Memory/Charisma; this is a steep cost for a skill which is almost never used. And in fact, I have not trained it on any character yet, even though in the circumstance when it would have been helpful, it probably could have helped a lot. Link due to Foo, who also has a good discussion of some implications.
This is a very welcome development. I won't make SDM III mandatory, because that's not the style of my corp. But I will be training SDM IV for all three of my characters that live out of my POS.
