Many players in game get the [Dis] attribute on their hull (eng. console) or shield slot for this reason. Either/or reduce damage by 20% from disruptors. Even if you crit, that's still 10% less base DPS. Disruptors are far too common in PvP and most Klingon ships in PvE.
While Tetryon does not scale well to RA, very few people spec against [Tet] damage - hence the reason people still flock to it. Also, one of my tetryon beam arrays has a 10% critical rate.
I'd say Polaron are good bet as their critical reduces power all around.
One great thing about STO is that if there's a favorite damage type from players or the NPCs, you have a reasonable chance of spec'cing against it.
