I keep EPtS on constant cooldown throughout fights, and the DOff proc hits pretty often for a nice power boost.
I typically also keep TB and ES on constant cooldown which is pretty devastating against single targets. Single targets like Donatra and Tac Cube shields fall within seconds, and they stop dealing damage shortly after.
I don't deal much damage, I had been running just Polaron Mk XII Borg weapons, but (very) recently decided to hit the exchange and swap out to Polarized Disruptors hoping to deal a bit more (particularly in fleet stuff).
I use the [Rapid Fire Missile Launcher] with T.Spread to deal with fighters, torps, and probes.

Reason: Added link to build
Drain builds are stupidly easy KDF side, and really difficult to get a shutdown Fed side. Siphon Drones and Plasmonic Leach are KDF only.
You've got a drain ability (ES or Tykens), Polaron procs, and Target Subs. That's pretty much what you can stack Fed side. If you have a group you play with regularly then have somebody else bring a Tykens. Or if you went so far as to get a Tholian ship on the same toon you have Thermionic Torpedoes.
The only issue I see with your build is your lack of survivability. Everything else looks pretty good. But god help you if some breen gets a lucky crit with a transphasic (shields up), or in the event your shields go down, you're pretty much screwed by ANY torpedo type, esp a hy/spread quantum salvo. And believe me, under focused fire, your shield WILL go down, since borg shields are not known for cap, and even with their amazing regen and tt1, you still won't be able to keep up with some of the burst I have come from PvE enemies, esp donatra and her 3 shot heavy disruptors followed by plasma torp spread, and the death pea from the gateways.
But you are partially right and partially wrong. Drain builds are viable, indeed, but FAR from optimal. Btw, you're boned if you try this in PvP lol...
