Starfleet merits - Used to buy BO skills, change ships looks etc
Energy credits - Raw currency, used at various vendors to buy weapons, ship parts, commodities
Marks of Exploration - Gained from explore missions - can be turned in at certain vendors for blue level items
Gold pressed latinum - Won from dabo on ds9, can be turned in for novelty items

What I dont know:

Marks of Valor - What are these? Where do they come from and what are they for?

Basically these are rewards from completing STF's (raids) and can be used to get anti-borg weaponry
"Emblems - See above

These are the VA currency that gets you purple Mk XI gear

Marks of Excellence - See above

I believe these are actually Badges of excellence and are rewards from PVP that give you blue/green stuff like exploration stuff does.

Any others? I'm sure there are more

Marks of Honour come to mind that is the reward drom pvp dailies and gives you purple mk x gear.
Thanks in advance!!
You're welcome
