The three-piece bonus 'perfect shield' has saved my behind a few times too!

And whilst, as I said in my earlier post, my favorite ship is the Fleet Nova, the Vesta is close second. Those Aux cannons are gorgeous, and with Aux power at 130/100 (courtesy of Elite Reinforced warp-core) they have quite some bite!
I agree with Reyan about the full 3-pack...

You get: Phaser lance (much better than Gal-X lance, haven't compared it to the Chimera (Vet) lance...), an AoE Heal (spammed this once in CE and nabbed first place), the graviton torp-reflector / graviton weapon (gotta try this against a cube's HY Topr after I aggro it), and the invincibility shield (click in time and you're safe...)

Also, why the love for the Aventine? that it has 4 Tac consoles and +5/+10 to weapons - a "dump stat" when you have Aux Cannons / Torps aboard? I do passable DPS with the Vesta itself, and it's 5 sci consoles.
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
