Thanks. If I had a fleet defiant I might have some use for running full aux for the cannons, but so far I find that the aux cannons are actually a distraction rather than a bonus.

But an aux beam array or turret! Now we're talking.

Otherwise, the Vesta to me is just a very expensive freighter with a lot of toys...

depends how many of these Aux cannons you can equip.... if it was more than 1 you wouldn't really need that much weapon power except for turrets or beam arrays... Sadly though its more likely unique like the quad cannons and wide angle quantum meaning one a ship.

Depending on how the aux cannons work and if you can equip a few? I might like them on a fleet defiant as well

The Priority One Shipyard Supplemental interview with Al "CaptainGeko" Rivera that take came out today said that Cryptic will limit the Aux DHCs to the Vesta. I didn't catch if they're going to be limited to one per Vesta or not.Edit: you can have 3x on a Vesta. I picked up 2x MK XII [Borg] Phaser DHCs to go along with the aux one just in case.

Other preparations include [Borg] Mk XII Phaser turrets for the rear, and a Phaser Dual Beam Bank for times that I want sub-system targeting. I made sure to grab all the MK XI space sets prior to the transition to the reputation system, to be able to try all of them out on the Vesta. I also picked up the Paratrinic Shield since it came recommended for shield tanking on STOWiki.
