I had that exact same thought when talking about the Vesta to my brother last night.

That said folks, if you want to run high-weapon power, you can. There's a few Science (!) powers out there that don't rely on aux at all (VM and the suddenly ubiquitous TBR come to mind). In a 2 Aux2bat setup with a pocket RSP 2 or EWP 1 you can get a ton of crowd control without needing Aux... and oh yes, there are Danubes, too. Seriously, I've seen acrobats less flexible than this ship. :/

I'd still like to know whether Phaser Relay consoles benefit the Quantum Focused Phaser ability.

Hoping so, but would like to know for certain as intend to go with an all-phaser build if they do.

I'd have brought it irrespective, as am a fan of the Destiny-series and Voyager relaunch books that the class appears in. And it is, in my opinion, a fantastic looking ship anyway.

But I really would like to know whether Phaser Relay consoles benefit the Quantum Focused Phaser ability.

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

I would buy it if they hadn't restricted the AUX cannon to that one ship. Maybe some day, if they want to make the sale, they'll come to their senses.

Are the cannons unique? Couldn't see in the description.

Can I stack 3 of them forward if I wanted to? or 2 + whatever else?
