For example, some of the ships in the C-store can be purchased with in-game currency (emblems when you hit max level). It takes 500 emblems to buy them. So you 'grind' by doing the same missions each day to earn more emblems to buy them. But if this is your first time playing, you will not be grinding for a while. There's plenty of missions and stuff to do to get you leveled up to Rear Admiral.

are there any missions that are good for 'power leveling' ? or is it best just to do missions as they come?

Pretty much doing the regular storyline missions along with the featured episodes are probably the most efficient ways to level. Although, the slowest leveling seems to be at Lt rank.

It's also worth giving PvP a try. You'll probably get your a** kicked the first few times but you'll still get some rewards and such for doing it.

Only if the que pops. There is not much PVP going on at lower ranks. Not much XP if you take into account the amount of time it takes. I leveled a toon up solely through space PVP. It took forever.

I didn't start PvPing with my VA until I hit VA, when I started my sci character I did some lower level PVP and while I didn't rocket to the top I did go a tad faster. At the lower levels any XP is helpful to get you to the top faster.

Join a fleet. In many fleets people have their VA toons and also have 1 or 2 LT/LC/CM level toons for playing with new people.

I found that going through the story missions is the fastest way to level. Side quests, pvp, and pve areas dont reward you as much in the way of exp.

I have found that the following lineup is one of the best ways to level

After the tutorial:

activate an 8 hour xp boost
Follow the story line and do the siruis and regulus sector patrol missions
Generally by the time you get half way through the regulus missions your XP bonus will run out and you will graduate to Lt. Commander

Activate another 8 hour XP boost
At this point I do the Devidian and Breen Missions followed by the Klingon Front Missions and Pi Canis Patrol Missions;

This generally gets you to Commander at the start of the Romulan Front Missions which gets you to a point
where you can level normally and fairly quickly

Just what I've found...there are many ways to augment this also:
Fleet Actions, Exploration Missions, PVP, War Zones, etc...
