I've seen Garumbas wreak havoc, but I've also seen them do very little. Also, they are shockingly cool...
So if the Garumba pilots could fill me in on their experience with this ship I'd be mighty grateful.
The biggest issue I have with it is that the Javelin shares a cool down with Beam Overload while at the same time having an aggravating charge up mechanic. So if you use two Beam Overloads you're going to have to pass on one of them to use the Javelin.
It has the same bridge officer layout as the Federation Fleet Escort, you know, the Dervish. But if you're going to focus on charging up Javelin shots it's going to play quite a bit different. During siege mode the siege destroyer can not dog fight.
