This all occurs in a mostly blind situation where you can't see with certainty anything other than your opponent's Captain and Ship types until after the initiate.
When you add ships like the Vesta (looks, at the moment) that are well rounded without clear significant weaknesses, you get a tool that is extremely powerful and one that mostly obosoletes other tools given that it has fewer weaknesses relative to its strengths, which directly translates to having the upper hand in more situations, and being wrong footed in fewer, before combat ever takes place.
In other words, why have Vista if you can have Windows 7?
Why have the ugly sister when the attractive one is in the next room?
Why have a Defiant if you can afford a Jemmy?
Why have a candlestick whrn you can have a torch?
Why listen to Justin Beiber when The Beatles are on Spotify?
Why have any other science ship with its own set of weaknessess when the day Season 7 comes out the Vesta appears in the CStore?
What was my point again...?
