Devs said that you can mount all 3 on a single vesta

That as the case may be, will probably still only mount one, with a dual-beam bank to facilitate sub-system targeting

Im definitely looking at a Tac/Vesta Hybrid! A DPS orientated Ship with the ability to support on the Fly!

A couple of those vesta abilities look pretty sweet (especially in No Win Scenario/Protect Convoy Missions)

I might have confused the borg cutting beam with the aux cannons due to a brainfart, in which case I humbly apologise.


However you would still need to buy the eyewateringly expensive triple pack if the aux cannons are a unique 1 per ship item that cannot be purchased otherwise - and you would still be sacrificing subsytems targetting or gimping your forward mounted beam/dual beam and any rear turrets if you chose to max out on the aux cannons.

The Vesta's strength is not the unique consoles or the aux cannons - it is the combination of the BO layout first and foremost, with the hanger on top for good measure.

Agreed - as said, will be fitting dual-beam phaser on mine - I still want to use sub-system targeting. Will likely go with Dual-beam, Aux cannon and torpedoes.

Not if you're using TBR for damage, or using Aux to Batts build.

Other builds will make good use of them though.

A little clarification:

1) You can mount 3 per Vesta.
2) You can buy 1 Vesta (2500 zen), remove the Aux Cannon, Reclaim it, remove the Aux cannon > repeat to 3.
3) The 3 pack grants the 3 different consoles, and the 3 different costume unlocks.

As eye-watering as the triple pack may be, That's what i'm going for!

Just a shame they haven't made the Vesta Publicly available on Tribble so that we can all try it out first!

Thanks for all the info peeps, keep it coming!

Glad I read this. Made me feel better about being a tac captain on a sci ship. I was starting to think I screwed up and was supposed to stick with ships ore appropriate to my career. (still learning alot).

I've soon saved up for the temporal destroyer, so I think I'll use that one for my tac, and the Vesta for my sci.
A contract is a contract...(but only between Ferengi).
