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.
Depending on which toon I run I pop something that boosts my power-levels prior to firing. Either a battery or one of the power-level enhancing powers.
I also wait until the target's shields are down before I fire the lance.
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.
My Guramba is flown by a science officer, the only power I use is Sensor Scan.
