Normally this type of thing comes up when I speak out for using DC/DHC over BA on KDF cruisers. So people will say first, well you can't stay on target. Then we prove that you can. Then they say that DC/DHCs just can't do any damage greater than 5k out. And then we prove that isn't true.
So normally sure if you were looking at a fed cruiser and thinking about what you wanted to mount, besides my avatar, you'd never consider the DC's. Just BA's, DBB, and Cannons. Oh and the turrets. That calculator is pretty comprehensive.
For my 2 cents on that situation, if it's a tac oriented boff layout w/a turnrate of at least 7 and Karfi inertia (idk it off the top of my head) go DCHs.
Otherwise, go for weapon's procs and maybe a BO. I've even considered looking for weapons w/zero CritH bonus for my Voquv since I don't want a low damage CritH to trigger a repair on a target I'm just going for a debuff proc on.
Also, OT for this thread but iirc there was another thread where crew came up. Imo, the extreme potential of stacking Leadership shows how impactful crew can be both in terms of hull regen and mitigating downtime from something like TSSx or VM. I hate to admit it, but I'm tempted to use Theta on my Sci just to make sure TSSX/VM matter and the target at least needs to bother w/a Battery/EPTX/ET. I'd rather they just up the proc crew damage from Photon torps though (gives a reason to use them as well).
