I play my D'd with cannons. I engage on my terms, decloak alpha with scatter volley and have my engineering powers like emergency power to weapons and directed energy modulation help make my enemies melt. If I need to turn I have Aux2Dampeners and recloaking which will help me reposition myself. Usually though enemies die before you ever need to turn (tractor beam/repulsor might help with that too).

This isn't a federation spacewhale, stuck maneuvering always with a low turnrate. Between fights, you can easily cloak and maneuver around with ease (which, quality of life-wise, is huge). The D'd works - you just need to think about how to best use it.
^ - This. And what Kregor said as well. This is how I fly my D'deridex as well.
