Let's see how many replies come in while I'm typing this.
Before there was a Duty Officer system, there was just Diplomacy. Diplomatic xp could be gained through doing the assorted non-combat exploration missions (like Aid the Planet), or through a few newer missions that rewarded Diplomacy xp. Diplomatic Investigation was added to help at least give the player a decent shot at guaranteeing a non-combat mission for the diplomatic xp instead of hitting star cluster after star cluster hoping to get one instead of "Blow up 5 sets of Romulans".
With the advent of the Duty Officer system, it's much simpler to get diplomatic xp, and Diplomatic Investigation remains a relic of an older time.
Edit: Only one response! I'm typing faster these days, it seems....
