It is much bigger than an escort, practically cruiser size but much more maneuverable (not quite escort level).
It hasa commander science station, apart from that you can model it like any ship you want thanks to universal LC and Ensign stations.
There will be 3 different flavoured versions, so you can pick the one with your favourite console layout, special ability and hull configuration.
The Vesta is coming with Season 7, yes? Then perhaps I'll hold off until it drops and I can check it out more closely. Thanks for the rec!
And BTW, "fragile" is a relative term. I duke it out with entire squadrons of battleships and cruisers in Starbase Fleet Defense and somehow survive. Gotta luv that M.A.C.O. set, plus an extra EPTS courtesy of the extra engineering station on the Fleet Escort. I'm a tank - just a really small one.
