Lances could certainly use a damage bump for the massive hit they took to their ability to rend through armor.
I'd be even more on board with a bigger damage bump for lances if their god damn crit rate took a hit. I've about had it with having near full hull ships with no deck, no engines, half their weapons, etc. The ship is fine. Shit just keeps breaking to crit. Lower crit, buff damage rates.
Also everyone wants better lances, but personally I want better missiles. They're on practically every chaos ship, yet really aren't very effective. They should get a much better accuracy at longer ranges, right now they have the same accuracy as macros. Which makes no sense to me. Just take anything past medium range up to 60% as the lowest missile accuracy goes.
One more thing in response to the chart vs favorite faction thing mentioned above. That isn't entirely true. Drukhari are by no means that popular because people like the faction. They sit that high because they've yet to come down from their perch they've been on since the betas. Still evaporating ships with hardly a fight back.
