I've always loved science vessels, especially ones that can devote minimum power to weapons, maximum power to aux systems and yet still fights like a tiger.

The Vesta's Aux powered DHCs are like a dream come true. So I started looking at what escorts I can adapt as a Aux heavy sci-scort hybrid. And I found it, the Chimera.

Forward Weapons: 4 x Aux DHCs
Rear Weapons: 2 x Quantum Torpedoes, Quantum Mine Launcher
Tactical Consoles: 3 x Phaser, Dynamic Tactical System Console
Engineer Consoles: 2 x Neutronium, 1 x Monotanium
Science Consoles: 2 x Field Generators
Ensign Tactical Slot: Tactical Team
Cmdr. Tactical Slot: Tactical Team, Torp Spread, 2 x Cannon Scatter Volley
Lt. Engineer Slot: 2 x Emergency Power To Shields
Lt. Science Slot: 2 x Hazard Emitters
Lt. Cmdr Science Slot: Transfer Shield Strength or Polarize Hull, Tractor Beam Repulsors, Grav Well

This ship will probably be moving constantly, doing attack runs with DHCs before turning around and launching a volley of torpedoes and mines, tossing heals and gravity wells as needed. Is this a feasible ship design?
