That's probably the gist of it.

The Nebula is one of the most well rounded ships in the game, while the Vesta has a bit more dedicated 'flexibility'(more of a two-class ship instead of covering all three at once). Meanwhile, the Ambassador is the cruiser side of the same coin as the Nebula - they're both great all-purpose support ships.

Most people tend to favor the Vesta now because it has great offensive options, and much of the game is a dps race. That said, it does have a glass hull.

Conversely the Fleet Nebula has stupidly powerful shields and a beefy hull to go along with it. It can handle a ton of punishment and still keep everyone going.

It does have potential as a torpedo ship(allowing you to put all power into aux and shields), but the Vesta does far outclass it at the role, offensively(there are very few ships that can match the Vesta as a torpedo platform).
