It works as good if not better than what you describe for pve.

Edit: DBB on bo1 with tac crits for 10-75k! The torps are crit for 5-40k. Can you make up for that in three volleys of cannons....lol!
i run
1 DHC, 1 Quantum, 1 DC, and one DBB in front
3 turrets in back

Beam overload is insane and if you have a weapons battery or in my case red matter capacitor you can mitigate the power loss instantly and hammer away it is a nice combo i do to keep up the DPS with my defiant and it works great at punching shields in the face and lowering them significantly or dropping that facing altogether. i like having one DC and one DHC with the DBB for sustained firepower with CRF. I reccomend to the OP most of what the other people have said but trade up most systems for borg/ MACO or have that deflector a Omega force deflector since it gives a accuracy bonus which can provide a bonus to crits.
