In my opinion, at least for shields, engine and the deflector, is the Aegis set it works like a charm.
The Vesta's strong point is it's shields, and the Aegis set complements it perfectly. My current Vesta build uses all available shield bonus consoles. That combined with the Thoron Distortion Field and the Reactive Shielding increases survivability exponentially.
The weak point remains the hull, so I have double Neutronium in the Eng slots, and Hazard Emitters and Aux2SIF are a must as well as anything that increases hull survivability.
Logic is the cement of our civilization with which we ascend from chaos using reason as our guide.
3x Aux phaser Cannons
MACO Set MK XI

Advanced peregrine fighters
BOFF layout :
Universal Lt Comm : SCI : Polarize Hull 1, Tachyon Beam 2, Viral Matrix 2
Universal ensign : ENG : Eng team 1
Lt. Tact : Tac team 1, cannon RF 1
Lt. ENG : EPTS 1, Reverse Shield Polarity 1
Comm SCI : Tractor beam 1, Hazard Emitters 2, Transfer Shield Strengh 3, Gravity well 2
This has the advantage of having a decent DPS, and enables you to fly with 100% Aux power which means the SCI powers will be at their best while also keeping your decent DPS.
I have tried a similar build with the science variant and it is quite good because of the +15 Aux power, but you lose one tac console
I also tried with the 3 unique consoles and i'm not impressed with the results, the only good power is the quantum phaser, very powerful, and very useful to finish off an escaping probe quickly.
If you want more team heal you might want to replace RSP with extend shields.
