# 1 Vesta Proposal
01-13-2011, 08:13 PM
I finished reading most of the Destiny series and am anxious to see the Vesta in the game so I played with dream stats a bit, enjoy your stay

Vesta Class Proposal (Tactical/Science Hybrid)

Suggested background blurb for STO: The Vesta is officially a extreme range explorer, but unofficially its a quick response vessel performing holding actions along with the excelsior class until the fleet arrives.

Pros
-Only non tactical ship to mount cannons.
-Only federation ship that has high tier powers that can mount dual cannons.
-Has target subsystems like science ships, and buff feature when implemented)

Cons
-Looses a forward weapon slot (like a science vessel)
-Looses a BO power in favor of higher ranked powers
-Looses a console.
-slower then most 'real' tactical ships, but still maneuverable enough to use dual cannons effectively.

Impulse modifier: .20
Inertia: 35
Turn Rate: 13
Crew 550
Hull points: 27000

Weaponry:
Fore weapon slots: 3 (Any including dual or heavy dual cannons)
Aft weapon slots: 3
Has Science target subsystem ability.

Bridge Officer Stations:
Tactical: Commander (1)
Engineering: Lieutenant Commander (1)
Science: Lieutenant Commander (1), Lieutenant (1)
Total: 11

Console Slots:
Tactical: 3
Engineering: 2
Science: 3

Special- As slipstream is common on tier 5 ships, simply give her a reduced recharge or a increased run time, or if nothing else, transwarp (ala Excelsior). If a lower tier version is implemented, give it the equivalent of quantum slipstream drive like an admiral.

That looks cool, and I probably would try it out too.

My only disagreement is with the "Special Transwarp (like Excelsior)"

The Transwarp system is what makes that ship more unique, I would like to see something unique for the Vesta...

.... and make it a Star Cruiser. My Nomad is looking tired already.

No thanks, we have a Science Cruiser (Nebula) and a Tactical Cruiser (Excelsior) now we need a Tactical Science option...

Why not we have the other two.

Personally I would of chose the Yaeger class to fulfil the role, but from the description given above the Vesta would fit too.

No thanks, I want a classic style cruiser instead of the fused no neck saucer and engineering hull. Vesta is just more of the same with what star cruisers have already.

Another MarySue-class proposal. But this setup I actually rather like. I'd probably actually fly this thing.

this is how I would change it jump the crew to about 750 and change the BOFF layout some to maybe this:
Bridge Officer Stations:
Tactical: Lieutenant Commander(1)
Engineering: Commander (1)
Science: Lieutenant Commander (1), Commander (1)


Console Slots:
Tactical: 3
Engineering: 3
Science: 3
