alacrity is mainly for healers. you shouldn't even be messing with aim as that's the trooper's main stat.
The typical "sweet spot" for surge is at around 75%, that is exactly five pieces of end-game gear. The optimal crit value seems to be around 35% w/o stim, maybe a bit more for sharpshooters. As far as augments go, you want cunning in most slots, maybe some power as well if your crit % is high enough already.

As to aim, you shouldn't ever gear for it, but nothing says you can't get the appropriate datacrons, after all they do add to your ranged damage and crit chance, and as a dps you want to squeeze out as much hurt as possible.
