Tbh with you, not even remotly enough Info from you to form any kind of reasonable answer.

Would you be kind enough to supply, what type of captain you are, what type of role you play, if you do PvE, PvP, SFTs, Solo grind?

I made mine into a support ship/heal boat. Don't get the ship thinking you can play it like a cruiser or Escort.

as a heal ship she works well but as a DPS she is slow to turn and lacks the console and weapon slots as a VA ship to be truly viable.

Pre nerf with a full Omega set and shield modules she was a beast but since the nerf its just one more bulky ship with too little firepower and hull strength to truly make the ship worth more than a vanilla Odyssey or even a Galaxy R let alone a Sci specific Odyssey.

in effect since the shield module nerf i'd seriously consider using the in game "free" and purchasable ships rather than spend real world money on an under-powered ship.

now with that said the shuttle that comes with it can be a little beast in the shuttle missions when geared with the shuttle equipment from the 2800 missions.

Funny that, but the best 2 Sci ships are the Nebby and Intrepid, the Best 3 Cruisers are the Excel, GX and Ody, and the best 2 Escorts are the Definat-R and MVAM.

Can anyone tell me, what they all have in common?

Maybe it looks strange but having all sci ships except nebula i use Reconnaissance sci vessel right now. Compared to D'kyr it has more tactical consoles and BOs and less engineering. You get extra damage from extra tac console. And those extra tactical BO ability gives tactical team, which is really good too... and you loose just 1 useless eng console (most likely RCS because without it D'kyr is slow, and RSV does not need this) and eng BO ability, which is well compensated by tac team...
So IMO just get "free" RSV and dont spend money on those D'kyr...

QTF.

But the D'Kyr, can use EWP, GW1 and PSW, that is where it shines.

Though the D'kyr is the ONLY science ship I do not own, and I will not buy it either. Its TOTALLY outclassed by he Nebula that can be made to have EXACTLY the same everything.

One thing I would mention though, the Tac Consoles are the WORST for a science ship, my opinion ofc.

Hmm tac console gives extra damage, and what eng console gives? Resists? 4 power? Looks useless...
Sci consoles are usefull ofc.

BTW i got D'kyr before they made nebula, so i had no choice...

It can't be "they're C-store ships", as the D'Kyr is *also* a C-store ship.. so "C-store ships are better" obviously doesn't apply here if the D'Kyr is 'inferior' in some way..
