ya, I can imagine it being tough to deal with in a Defiant. My Odyssey can normally handle it, but it's not fun. I don't know if you pug or pre-made PvP, but maybe consider dropping that TSS for a TBR, and running a scatter volley build. Finally, "consider" putting a TS1 in that ensign slot, and putting a torpedo in one of your aft slots. I don't like to run any torpedos in my escorts, but it is one way to deal with spam and make use of that cruddy ensign tac slot. The nice thing about this is you don't even need to spec into torpedos, as they are really there just to clear spam. But if you are running premade, perhaps its time for a sci-ship to run some sort of tykens/grav well and repulsor build, and have them worry about cleaning up the field of fire.
