Science ships are bit weak in damage direct from weapons compared to escorts, and even cruisers, due to there 3 fore, 3 aft weapon layout. There are still ways to get some damage out of Sci ship, so post which ship you have and your current BOff layout, ship gear, and your current skill layout, and we should be able to at least recommend some things to help your output.

Either that, or grab a Vesta load it up with Aux Dual Heavy cannons(only sci ships that can take dual cannons, and only ship that has Aux powered ones), plop a Tactical officer in its Universal Lt. Commander spot with Cannon abilities and have about 3/4 the firepower of an escort while still having a Commander Sci BOff to play with.
