What makes the Vesta (and the Wells) a great ship is the Ltc Uni.

The Wells does it better, with a stronger shield mod, better hull, the most amazing turn rate on any Sci ship and the ability to go full on healing through uni boff stations and an incredibly powerful console.

The sum of those abilities far outweigh the advantages the Vesta has with regards to (Aux) DHCs, Pets and multiple toy consoles (although I'm a big fan of Fermion Field).

(I'm not saying you were wrong anywhere, just reinforcing that the issue with lockbox ships is not limited to the JHAS.)
