I have the pack and I'm quite happy with it for my Sci toon. I use the Aventine (Tac Vesta) with 3x Aux Cannons up front. In the rear, I have 2x TriC mines and the tractor mines from the Cutting the Cord mission. In order to keep it more survivable, I use the hull/shield repair console that comes with the Sci version and I also use the Phaser beam console that comes with the Tac version for when I have a target held. Using Aux Cannons with the turn rate of the ship. I find the tractors help t keep the target from moving less so I can hit them hard when they are in my sights.
