They mention in several mission dialogues that a specialised ship (mining ship, medical ship etc) will be sent by Starfleet to deal with the situation after you've cleaned up. So I think it's fine; you're there doing casual exploration while dealing with the war. A lot of the missions are system patrols, and you'd want a warship to patrol, wouldn't you?
And the way Starfleet and the galaxy is depicted in the show, there are often only a handful of ships even vaguely near each other at any one time. Often ships are a few days away from each other. So regardless of your role, you need to do what Starfleet does best, stick your nose in everyones business. :p
