I'm at Commander 5 and I've got over 165,000 so far. That's why I think JustPete should go ahead and spend it at Starbase 39 if he can find something useful. When I hit Commander, I think the white level V stuff was not as good as my green and blue level IV exploration and mission reward equipment. However, I don't think that's the case when you hit Lt Commander.

Also IMO if you visit each exploration cluster for more than say 3-4 sets of 3 missions, you're going to end up getting way too much experience and outleveling the regular missions. Given that a single set of ships shields takes 3 trips to the clusters, you really do not want to be buying all your stuff via badges or you'll get all your experience from the clusters and end up having too easy of a time on the regular missions. The regular missions are already too bloody easy without being over-leveled.

[Edit: Correction I've got over 165,000 Credits so far at Commander 6. They are just piling up.]
