then new Vesta class?
looking at the stats i'm very impressed. I realize the consoles are for the ships only, but are the aux powered cannons?

Also, on a side note, how are the books the ship is from?

I just started reading Destiny Book 1, it is quite good thus far. Certainly worth picking up a copy.

bump....wanting a dev reply or someone who has the ship if possible.

Aux powered cannons are supposedly an option that can be moved to other ships, and that you can have multiple copies of. Subject to change though.

That said, the only Fed ship with the ability to utilize the aux cannons is the Defiant and the Dreadnought. Both have a cloaking device, and the DNC can be a mean healer while running full aux. Just pop Aux2Batt when getting ready to fire the spinal lance. No other escort beyond a weird Armitage spamming fighters (Fighters are useful in pve but useless in pvp.) or a weird Prometheus spamming science skills (with only just 3 slots...? Really?) can use them properly.

What I'm wondering is how effective would a defiant with them be? How effective would it be to use one pair of them mixxed in with a more standard weapons layout on a defiant, just to eliviate some of the draw on the weapon power settings? Have there been any postings of the actual cannons? has the ship gone live on tribble?

Its there but limited to a few select testers. I've not seen it in open testing.

If anybody is a tester for the ship....or a dev? could a screen shot of the cannons be posted?

crusader2007 11-07-2012 04:43 PM sucks...guess depends on the eye of the beholder. Why waste money for a SCI ship with uselesss hull..wait till the Andorian Battleship comes out and you'll see a "real" beauty :D

bad hull perhaps but the most powerful shields in the game
Having an escort with 4 shield emitters and a 1.3 modifier gives close to 30000 a facing do you need hull at that point? It can use cannons has a decent turn rate has has an incredible layout console carries fighter and wont die and it only loses a little hull the shi is op. And know with the cutting beam you can use its sci abilities phasers 360 degrees. Without having to give a single dual heavy.
