well...

It is doable, with the proper build and component setup. You can make the science vessel DPS rather well.

Just understand, it is purposefully nerf, by Cryptic, to never equal the DPS of an escort. But it is not far behind either.

Will be very interesting to see the builds that some will come out with for this. Should be fairly exciting.

Awww shizz guys, [DMG]x4 with -10 to weps and eng is what I used to run ALL the time... won't we be able to put the Aux cannons and the Quads on the Vesta for nerfbat superiority?

Sweet no-HP aux heals, low turn rate with the engine sucked dry, and totally light on DPS with only 3 DHC-type weapons? Man... it won't even feel OP in an STF.

these aux cannons are only gonna be good on a ship that would run more aux then anything else anyway. the vesta with its cannons can forgo weapons power completely, have 2 chono mines and a beam array aft and dump everything in aux, so its abilities, heals, and damage are as strong as they can be at the same time. DHC are the least drain-e of all weapons with the way they fire, they arent even going to hurt your high aux up time all that much.

So the quad cannons on the Vesta aren't viable?

Saying that, I intend to pop a dual-beam bank on the front anyway.

The vesta can mount normal cannons so you could run it that way.

They would never be viable, because Phaser Quad Cannons are restricted to Escorts and Dreadnaughts.

While I agree not everything is canon in this game, they made the Quad Cannons close enough to it.

Alright well, I guess that's that then... The ship does look nice though..

Sorry guys, I wish I could experiment with this ship and what it has to offer. Hopefully they'll unbound them cannons.
It was established a few days ago, I believe, that it was going to be restricted to the Vesta.

Cannons aren't good for canon. Are canon cannons canon? By definition, they should be. Wouldn't it be sweet to have a Canon Can o' Worms [Acc]x2 [Dmg]x2 ?
