Now Crit rate, MAY affect these, but highly doubt it. But I do agree that these powers could crit, but since most Science powers take time to recharge. It be kinda hard to determine if they do crit, in any reasonable amount of time.
No I can pretty much test that in 15 minutes ^_^ Also, instead of going of memory a log is probably much more useful. Being an unreasonable person flying a tactical officer in a science vessel, I could totally do this:

Just Tractor Beam Repulsor III
Your Tractor Beam Repulsor Blast III deals 1076 Kinetic Damage to Bird-of-Prey.

(After enough time, I managed to get a 1900 or so crit without attack pattern alpha up, indicating ~66% crit severity)

The sudden x(y) damage report here seems to be an artifact of fire on my mark

Fire Disruptors! Fire at Will! Attack Pattern Beta!
Your Tractor Beam Repulsor Blast III deals 2014 (1428) Kinetic Damage to D'deridex Battleship.

Your Tractor Beam Repulsor Blast III deals 2275 (1474) Kinetic Damage to D'deridex Battleship.
Average Damage: 2300
Disruptors and Attack Pattern Delta don't seem to add much. I didn't manage to check if disruptors proc'd or not. No crits managed to happen on this attack run.

I can't prove that the crit rate is affected, without doing this a lot more. But damn does that power crit. I'm disinclined to test Gravity Well/Shockwave etc. because of the time involved. I remember seeing photonic shockwave crit before, but one guy's memory isn't exactly reliable.

For the record, tooltip numbers:
Attack Pattern Alpha III: 57% damage, 3.8% crit chance, 38% crit severity
Fire on my Mark III: -47 all damage resistance
Tractor Beam Repulsors III: 1,174 kinetic damage (before any buffs applied)
Aux at 115 at all times
