this vesta is going to have VASTLY enhanced movement control for absolutely free thanks to runabouts, on top of every other sci/sci trick. and then it will beat on you with its 3 DHCs, dealing near escort damage, when you are at your most vulnerable. it can do this all by itself.
i really shouldn't have to explained why this all in 1 with 0 downsides is a VERY BAD thing. and no, it will have no actual downsides, you can count on it.
Agreed, agreed, agreed. The big question, as noted above by somebody else, is a turnrate. DHC on a ship with 9-10 turnrate is only minimally impressive and won't do much against faster moving escorts and even the new timeships. Cruisers are of course a diff. story.
