Only the Aux DHC that comes with the ship draws Aux power, other weapons draw weapon power as normal. You only get one Aux DHC per ship, but you can claim the ship, put the Aux DHC into your inventory, dismiss the ship and repeat until you have 3.

And to the last question, other than running on Aux power they're identical to any other [Acc]x2 [Dmg] Phaser DHC, how good that is is open to interpretation.

I didn't like it.

I succumbed to Forums pressure and got the Vesta. It's been a fascinating two days so far. It's a lot to tinker with. The consoles, the BOFF layout, the weapons choices, the hangar pet. So far it's been a really engaging experience.

I still like the smooth flying of the Luna I was using, and maybe it's all in my head but even at just 1 point lower turn rate the Vesta seems more sluggish. But it does so much more. Haven't tried any Elite STFs yet, since I'm still learning the ship, but did a bunch of Normal STFs and it's been a whole bunch of fun. I can do all the CC type annoying things I was doing before, but I also feel like I kill targets much more efficiently. The cannons and the pet seem to have more punch than my prior set of DBBs and Quantum Torp launcher.

Seriously though, what have they than to the science class. We feel so under power. It take forever to kill things nowadays.

What type of Vesta did you choose to use if I might ask? Did you get the whole bundle or got I of the 3 that you prefer?

I got the three pack. I've been messing with the tactical and the science versions trying to find which one I like better. Tactical one works really smoothly thus far.

Nowhere did I see today's patch made science powers usable again.

I got the 3 pack of Vesta, but not sure how to spec them out, just using the 3 cannons with the same build as I had my Luna, works much better than the Luna, but there the damage is still horrible.

Does anyone have a decent Vesta Recon build?

If you have 3 damage control engineers of rare or higher quality it makes a nasty beamboat using the LTC for tactical and ensign for engineering
