Whatever makes you happy.
I will give the Vesta my full support though. It's a wonderfully flexible ship that can handle whatever job you throw at it, and do it well. Provided shield-ignoring weapons aren't involved(it does have a fragile hull), it's by far the tankiest ship I have. My kinetic specialist can tank elite tac cubes indefinitely and clear a side of KASE, while also covering probes, by themself.
My main advice for the ship is to not fall into the trap of trying to fit it like a traditional escort - it will always be inferior to actual blaster-boats. As a torpedo boat, it has the potential to match all but the most elite pvp escort builds. Alternatively, there are very few ships that can match it in a support role(Fleet Corsair is the closest KDF counterpart, they're both up there with the Ambassador/Kamarag).
