Actually is not a bad idea to add AUX based weapons (beams and turrets, not DHC, Vesta or any other future payable ships will be of course excluded from this), BUT for certain ships (science oriented cruisers and science ships) and limited number, up to 4 per character to be exact.

As for the argument fly an escort for DPS or want to do DPS then weapon power should be high, there is the counter that if you fly an escort the first thing you do for the power levels is the following, shield and aux to min, weapons to max and the reaming to eng. Thats the secret. Ok, you may have an alt to change to heal and shield that most players use when they break from a fight.

The devs created very good escorts, now it is time to create some science and cruisers equivalents. Escort captain will complain, but eng and science captains that fly an escort will switch to their character default ship. In my sci I want to fly a science vessel and have the ability to destroy an escort if I have a superior build.

You missed the point.

3 DHCs & 3 Turrets with CRF or CSV means very large, and unreliable dips on all of the active use sci powers available.

Not even a battery will mitigate this.

Maybe you should stop crying over spilled milk.

The Aux DHCs are already in game and the vesta can run all standard DHCs & Turrets while popping a battery before using sci powers with no weapons fire draining away aux power.

Don't you think it'd be too good?


Hell, the current Vesta already is too good. (yes, I have it)

I'm gonna have to go with NO.

The Vesta is a predominately science ship that has some capability for self defense. It is NOT an escort with boosted shields.

Certainly not.

The Armitage is a escort, even if it have a hangar its certainly still a Escort in all aspects.

The Atrox can mount DHC, even if it certainly cannot really make much use of then they can still mount them.

LOL... Says you. The Devs said it was pretty much all sorts of ships in one and quite honestly I can dish out nearly as much DPS and far MORE Spike damage with mine than most any Escort could DREAM of accomplishing while still having much greater heals. It does suffer from a lack of Hull which with the Borg Super Torps right now is painful but aside from that it is an awesome ship.

However, the Aux cannons are currently a waste of time. Yes, they have nice stats but if you want to take advantage of beams or rear guns then you need to have those work on Aux as well. Just using a few Aux weapons and a few normal ones is a Stupid mix. Loading your aft with all mines and torps is even more foolish.

Can I ask you what you are using for weapons? Just curious.
I personally can't find a set up that I'm satisfied with, so I could use some of your wisdom.

I would pay 43k Dilith for 1 Aux Turret. Just like the Galor Beams.
