Correct it's supposed to be a bridge set between just hitting Rear Admiral Lower to earning your first endgame set. IE... it gets you through Normal STFs until you can earn enough marks to get a Mk X Assimilated, M.A.C.O., Omega, or Honor Guard set. Or a Romulan/Reman set in their rep track. This is why you can craft and equip the Aegis set at such a low level.

725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

You can also just buy it off the Exchange. Easiest set to acquire by far.
