According to one Dev it was possible over a weekend and a case of Redbull.

It seems it's pretty quick, even with exploring and plain learning the game, I'm 38 in under a week. I imagine if I actually knew what I was doing, it would go pretty quick. Seems like grinding on the fleet missions (especially SB defense) are the way to go. What's the general consensus on the fastest way to power rank?

I don't doubt it, I was RA by launch day with the head start. I know they changed the curve since then, but I'm not really an alt person so I don't know how much it was affected.

Mirror universe incursions are the fastest way to gain xp. You can get at least one grade per battle. Do it fast and you can get off many in an hour.

Whatever you do, make sure to DOFF on the side. It takes very little time (if you aren't hunting for a particular assignment), and does provide a nice flow of XP.

I haven't tried the Mirror event myself, but I generally find Episodes (on Normal difficulty) give very good XP for the amount of time.

Yes- I have 100 DOFFs and constantly 21 missions running. I try to focus on the 3-5 hours ones but always take a Blue or Purple mission if it's available.

I've played the game 59 hours and I'm level 35, pluss a couple of level into my klingon char.

I have by no means done it hardcore, granted those 59 hours were spent over 9 days.

I've found you can get about 1500xp in 10 minutes if you go to the borg defence thing, and some nice Vice Admiral lets you join his team, then I get about 200xp for a borg sphere and close to 400 for a cube.
