In the books/tech schematics featuring the Vesta-class, it states that the Vesta has a Runabout pad (ala DS9) not an actual hangar/flight deck.

Go watch any episode of DS9 showing a Runabout getting launched from its pad. Its not quick and those are not combat conditions. Again, it is NOT a Flight Deck ship or Carrier. It has a working Runabout Pad/Shuttle Bay.

I have already theorized the slow hangar was WAD/WAI in another thread for balance, which was apparently confirmed via Twitter. As powerful as the ship can potentially be it does not even need a hangar.
