I'd go with something like this for boff set up...
TT1, APB1, CRF2, APO3
Tac Lt. Commander
HY1, CRF1, BO3
I know the Defiant is considered a "glass canon", but isn't all the shield healing not a bit much?

Why the Omega shields? They have a higher regen but capacity seems very limited.
As for the dual heavys, that is one option also although in another thread I've read that it is possible with the quad cannons that you might get a lower aggro with the about the same DPS output.
Tac Ensign BTW1 try Tac Ensign BTS1
you will have a chance to disable the oponent shields and destroy it faster
and the APO3 is more eficient than APD3 u will have a bonus in critical, damage and moovment
EPtS1, EPtS2 in cycle with TT1X2 in my opinion is better
i run 2 Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XII
Dual Phaser Beam Bank Mk XII
Phaser Quad Cannon
and the omega set is more focused on damage but u will ned to hit and run
i have the same build like you exept those modification and skills focused on energy beam no torpedos and is a killer :d at least in my opinion
