Keep in mind, you're getting free ships while leveling.

I think the intended flow is for free players to hit new ranks quickly, quickly be unable to do content without a new ship, and have to spend 2-3 days grinding or spend $10 on the C-Store.

It's only if you're subbing that it's lightning fast.

And even then, the focus isn't on LEVELING but on gear based progression. Hitting level 50 just means you finished the tutorial. The real game is about acquisition of unique stuff.
