The Vesta is probably better in every way except for taking damage. Better firepower, more maneuverable, better toys, and if you went with the (expensive) 3-pack, you get 3 survivability powers: one for knocking away incoming torps and getting out of tractor beams, one for a very significant heal over time that affects both hull and shields, and an invulnerability bubble that has saved me from some of those crazy Borg plasma rings that are usually instakill.

Ultimately, the ship on its own is a bit of a toss-up. It's only if you get the 3-pack and are willing to sacrifice the console slots that the Vesta really becomes the gem of science ships.
