Load the appropriate boff abilities and I think you can have a tanky, DPS centered vesta. Full power to aux and then whatever elsewhere.

Thoughts....
That setup is on my list to make, I've been keeping all the blue quality or better tricobalt consoles childrens toys gives me and when I have 4 and get the Omega T5 so I can equip the Honor guard set I'm gonna make a trico bomber that flattens shields a bit, disables and then makes the bombing pass. I'm predicting fireworks from it. its gonna have 2 tric mines and 1 tric torp rear. I figure if that cluster of doom hits on a yellowed shield its game over.

I bought the 3 pack and have tried them all out

I find the Aux cannons to be useless I'n pve

If all 3 consoles were rolled into 1 they would be
Worth a console slot as they are there simply not
Worth a slot

Shuttle launch time is too slow to be of any real use

The choices off Boff slots is really nice allowing for
Most build choices

Installed beam arrays and got good performance equal
To the fleet recon sci ship however not better

The looks of the ship is first rate

Add beam arrays to the vesta I'n Aux confit and it
Will be worth having I'n pve

As the vesta currently is I do not recommend it as
A pve ship it's simple not worth the money unless your a die
Hard cannon fan that likes going nose to nose with any ship
And dont mind respawning a lot

Add Aux beam arrays and a dual beam bank so proper tactics can be used with
The ship and it would be worth the cost even with the poor
Consoles
That's my opinion of the vesta
Jellico....Engineer.....Stargazer KDF Tac
Saphire.. Science.....Ko'el Rom Kdf Tac
Leva........Tactical.....Mailu KDF Sci

JJ-Verse will never be Canon or considered Lore...It will always be JJ-Verse

Captain Kirk here obviously likes it...made multiple posts and entire threads on his RP ship.

The Vesta is my new flagship. Its the most powerful science ship available simply because its able to mount DHCs. The hangar and console are icing on the cake. The Boff layout is superb, allowing for a variety of builds from pure science CC/heal to a more 1v1 setup. I used to despise how the ship looks. Its like someone steamrolled an intrepid with a sovy.
But its growing on me. Its my new fav.

Im running an aux to bat build and loving global VM III and ST III, both not needing aux. Perma DEM II and CRF I make it able to deal heavy damage.

why yes I AM proud of this ship... 1 because it made converting from the Fleet DSSV easy since I just moved things over with no changes until I actually used it in PVP and ESTFs then the tweaking started I dont use the Aux DHC's simply because they dont fit my play style... its not an RP ship but this is something I kinda tinkered with early in this games life by writing up short bio's for the senior staff and actually researching the ship name that I had chosen..... not so much for RP purposes but for my own CDO (its like OCD but with the letters in the proper order).... aside from that you do have a point I have posted this build far to often when all I really had to do was link it instead of re-writing it everytime someone asks about my build

they are Blue quality Scoripons for the Hangar bay so I'm not sure what you are asking.... anyway they work pretty well of course for STF's and PVP I still swap out the Scorps for the Danubes..... while having the scorpion consumable you get from one of the romulan mission.. at least that way I still get scorpions to play with to annoy people
