I know it sounds crazy but I've been doing explore missions. They can be insanely repetitive but you get a little bit of everything- mats, XP, Boff points, diplomatic XP (some of the time). If you rank up high enough the mission it will not appear in available missions- unless you'e in the system, but you can do it as many times as you want. I got the accolade for doing the Delta Volanis mission 70 times. It only took maybe a week and a half? Afterwards I went to Memory Alpha and crafted schematics for 20 minutes. I ended up with a Lt Commander (maybe full Commander don't remember) that was maxed out on crafting. It also maxed me out on diplomatic XP.
If you get sick of the explore missions just go into the unexplored system and minimize the pop up box so you don't start whatever mission it is. There should be at least two, usually 3 or 4 anomalies in each system.
