Thoughts on the Vesta so far

I think I may like the Vesta more than my Armitage. Wow. I'm flying the engineer-ish version with all three special consoles. You lose some hull points and the runabout launch more slowly, but very good shields and enough science toys to be fun. I had to add a Mk XII RCS console to get the turn rate up where I wanted it. It's not a bad turn rate without the rcs, just not Armitage good.
EDIT: I took off all the factory weapons and am running tetryon beam arrays and quantum torpedoes. I don't PVP, so I don't know how this would do there.
One thing I've noticed that's odd, occasionally in the middle of a firefight, especially against the Breen, the words "OFFLINE" will flash over the ship for a few seconds. It doesn't look like any weapons or abilities are affected. Anyone know what this is?
Porthos is not amused.
