Personally, I think this is worse than the STFs in terms of the amount of time it's going to take to get the set. I don't mind a grind, but with the event being time gated, I can't even grind it. They really should make this event always available, but give it a cooldown or something.
Actually, the total datalogs needed would be 96. The very rare set is only 20 datalogs each:

Also, if you get a Eureka! success in the assignment, you also get 5 datalogs back.

As for the time needed... I can definitely see how it would be hard for a lot of people. In my case, the planets came into alignment and I've been able to do the event twice a day (except for the ones that appear at 2 or 3 in the morning >.< ). So I'm well on my way, but even from rare -> very rare will take some time. Overall less grind than STF gear, but still a grind.
