What I do when I run low on missions (basically, if the missions I have are higher level than I am) is I start to do an exploration mission between each patrol/episode.

The badges can be used to buy some decent stuff. Especially the Tier 3 badges, which for some silly reason are used to buy the Mk VIII shields. So if you stock up enough points, the moment you get your tier 4 ship, you can get a rare shield of the type you want with the mix of capacity and regen you want, be it 2x cap, 2x regen, or 1 of each.
