The most technologically advanced line of starships in the fleet, the Multi-Mission Surveillance Explorer: Vesta Class comes with a myriad of new technologies. Originally designed as a testbed ship for the experimental quantum slipstream drive, Vesta type ships have been successful in combats against the Borg. One of the initial Vesta class ships, the U.S.S. Aventine, is commanded by Captain Ezri Dax.
By definition, this ship is extremely versatile. It features a bonus Science Console slot, a hangar bay, Sensor Analysis, Subsystem Targeting, and is the only Science Vessel that can equip cannons. It also features Universal Lieutenant Commander and Universal Ensign Bridge Officer Stations that can be operated by any Bridge Officer class.
The Vesta Class comes standard with a Mark XII Auxiliary Dual Heavy Phaser Cannon. This cannon is designed to utilize Auxiliary Power instead of Weapon power. The Vesta Class also comes equipped with a Sympathetic Fermion Transceiver universal console. The Sympathetic Fermion Transceiver creates a large Fermion Field around your ship. This field will continuously repair you and your allies hull and shields while also providing a buff to Starship Particle Generators.
The Sympathetic Fermion Transceiver may be equipped by any Multi-Mission Science Vessel in any console slot. It is part of the Experimental Systems Set. The other two pieces of this set, the Quantum Field Focus Controller and the Multidimensional Wave-Function Analysis Module, can be found on the other Multi-Mission Explorer starships. The two-piece set bonus grants you Chroniton Integrated Quantum Slip Steam. The three-piece set bonus grants you a Quantum Focused Shield Bubble.
The Multi-Mission Surveillance Explorer comes with the Vesta Class ship Costume. Acquiring other Multi-Mission Science Vessels will unlock additional costume options for your ship.
