No, I have. I've got 4 VRs from DOffing, and I did try it (because I was going with Plasma).
On an escort layout (3 DHCs + Torps) it does not do as well. The DHCs will destroy most targets before the torps get to them. Against 3 Negh'vars in CSE, the Rom torps only land once (3 torps on one target) before they die from DHCs with CSV1 + APB3.
The difference again is the ship. You're talking about a Sci torp boat, I'm saying that on a standard escort layout DHC/Torp layout it's strictly inferior to other torpedoes.
Heck, even two quantum torps with the 3 DOffs will give you a constant stream of better torpedoes that don't get shot down and won't blow up from your first victim's warp core beach.

that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you're there... you can make a difference."
