Not a good position to be in.

PvP you've to balance your survivability with your ability to kill your enemy. Best PvPers are those who don't require someone else to do their own job.

If you were a Fleet Escort or an Armitage with 3x Engineer BOFFs, I can see slotting a DEM for that burst. But I would recommend against it on a Defiant.
agree with you 100%, which is why I very rarely use it in PvP (only PvE against borg), unless I am part of a non-pug team that I know will heal me. We are on the same page....
