Is the Kar'Fi any good? In the right hands, yes, but it depends on exactly what you want to get done
Want to use it for PvP? You might be at a disadvantage: because as a C-Store ship, it only has 9 consoles, while the ultra-top-tier Fleet ships have 10 console slots, along with an extra boost to shields/hull. That doesn't mean you can't use it, but you gotta be prepared.
For PvE (whether regular episodes, STF's, or other events), it can get the job done much like the rest of the T5 ships, with most builds effective.
As for the Frigates, they're not exactly raw DPS-ers, but they do have a lot of unique effects that you can exploit
Multiple Aceton Beams really cut down enemy beam damage (includes cannons), and they regularly use chroniton and transphasic torpedoes... meaning there's gonna be a fair amount of slow and disable effects. Their abilities include Cannon:Rapid Fire II and Torpedo:High Yield II, with the latter increasing the effectiveness of the frigate's torpedoes.
And in transphasic's case, gives them the ability to open a rift on their target XD Causes heavy damage and disable, but has a bit of a high recharge timer. This can be moved around by respawning a new batch, with the timer's fresh on the new ones

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.
