Honestly, if you are a science captain then you need a Vesta class, the thing is an epic beast. Claim and dismiss it a few times to get 3 of the AUX cannons up front, run max AUX power and with a good build you can absolutely decimate anything.
I run mine with the 3 AUX cannons up front, 2 turrets and a transphasic mine launcher rear and the thing does amazing DPS while still having great survivability, plus with max AUX power you get more bang out of your science powers.
I consider the Vesta a warship not a science vessel. Just like the Chet Grell(sp?) is a warship not a cruiser same with the Fleet Vor'Cha and many other ships.
Claiming Sci Vessels are fine because one has more in common with an escort than a science vessel just highlights the issue perfectly if you ask me.
STO has a diverse group of players with a wide range of expectations and playstyles. To that end the STO team should endeavor to create a variety of content with a diverse set of difficulty levels and challenges. Cake for everyone!
