You weren't looking hard enough.

From the very blog post that announced the ship:

"Multi-Mission Science Vessels come standard with a Mark XII Auxiliary Dual Heavy Phaser Cannon. This cannon is designed to utilize Auxiliary power instead of Weapon power. "

As you can see, it is not some kind of innate ability, just a special weapon like Quad Cannons. lrn2read and so on.

I read somewhere that if you change your tray layout (the 1/2/3/4/ thing), that might fix this.
I don't have my Vesta yet so I can't say, but supposedly the Steamrunner had a similar issue, and I fixed it by switching the HUD layout to #1 and right-clicking the weapon icons in the main tray.
