The enemy contacts you keep running into show up on the sector map. If you see one somewhere near you, move and you won't end up in a random encounter. They're not really that hard to avoid if you just look at what's near you.

Best thing to do I think would to do all your reading, skill spending, ect.. before you leave the system and head into sector space. Once you finish a mission you don't have to leave right away. You can always leave later, and you won't get a DSE (Deep Space Encounter) if you're not in sector space.

The reason you see some so much higher level is normally due to the way those encounters scale to the players level.
