my advice would be that, on a tac captain or sci captain, that you think of flying your vesta like a big escort. as pax mentioned above, once a shield facing is down, a good escort pilot will chew through that hull really quick.

for an engie captain in the vesta, id say forget it......use the intrepid if you want an engie sci setup. that is if you don't have the recluse. that ship is made for being the rock in PVP.

have fun kill bad guys
Just out of curiosity, with your recent relocation, are you dabbling in any new consoles horizon? I know it's something me and you talked about last we spoke, and if you indeed are, I'm curious as to what your thoughts are on them after having held out on using them for so long.
