EDIT: Since the quad cannon got buffed, is it useful now in place of one of the DHC's? I really don't know.
From my quick testing (and parsing) on Tribble, the damage is in the same range as my phaser mk xi [critd]x3 and mk xii [critd]x3.
It's not bad, but I don't think it's $15 worth.

Not unless you max out a lot of skills and Aux power. Even then I doubt it. Aux2str's actually more valuable for the combination of a hull heal and a damage resistance buff it offers.
We're talking something like +19% to all resistances here for the Lt version, Eng team may heal 4000 more hit points per minute at that teir but the 19% resistance boost for 40 seconds out of every minute can be massive if you don't slot a lot of armor. Most escorts don't.
The Commander version's +36% damage resistance is part of the reason some cruiser builds are so hard to bust even though they don't equip a lot of armor.
