How do I go about getting some "oompf" from the Lance?
We'd have to see your setup as-is...
In general, you should be running Phaser Relays on the Χ, since that will boost the damage of the Lance. Running high weapon power also helps, though you may need to shut off your main phasers or time your Lance better since Beams hold their power drain much longer than Dual Heavy Cannons. There's also the usual general damage boosts from Attack Pattern Beta and Omega that you may have been using on your Guramba that you weren't on your X because of the relative lack of Tactical officer powers.
