Does anyone know what type of ship weapons [phaser, disruptor, plasma, polaron, tetryon, antiproton] are best to use against certain enemies [Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Borg, Undine]? Or is it you just pick your favorite color and choose the ones that provide the most damage?

Weapon types don't really matter. The only difference is the weapons with the Borg modifier, which can inflict more damage versus Borg. Weapon type choice really only matters based on playstyle and preference, as each type has it's own proc. Check them out and see which one fits you the best.

Found this info:

Phaser Chance to disable a random subsystem (weapons, shields, engines or auxiliary) for a short period
Disruptor Chance to reduce damage resistance by 10% for 15 seconds
Plasma Chance to apply a fire damage effect to hull for 15 seconds
Tetryon Chance to reduce all shield facings by -80
Polaron Chance to reduce all power levels by -25
Antiproton Chance to penetrate shields (?)

Pretty much just choose your favourite colour.

Phaser, Orange: 2.5% knocks a subsystem offline
Disruptor, Green: 2.5% weakens damage resistence by 10%
Plasma, Teal/Aqua: 2.5% Hull fire
Tetryon, Blue: 2.5% Damages all Shield facings
Polaron, Purple: 2.5% Drains energy out of Systems
Antiproton, Red: 100% to do 20% more crit damage, but you need to crit first obviously.

Mission Specials
Plasma-Disruptor Hybrid's are Green and do both the Plasma and Disruptor procs but independantly. And count as Disruptors
Polarised Tetryon have a 10% chance instead of 2.5% and count as Tetryon
Phased Polaron have Both Tetryon and Polaron procs and count as Polaron

It is generally considered that Disruptor or Antiproton do the most raw damage, Especially in STF where many targets won't have shields.
