That seems like a horribly extended chain of events just to get it.
Run mission to get currency 1.
Doff mission to trade currency 1 for currency 2.
Trade currency 2 for pet.
Run missions with pet to age/evolve.
Track what stage various efforts are in, so you are eventually doing all of them.
When a simple 15/20 minute STF can get 90 marks, and the process just to get 400 romulan marks can take a month....sad.
Well the idea with Epohh tagging is that it takes awhile to "prime the pump" so to speak, but once it starts flowing, it flows quickly.
And of course there are no STFs for Romulan Rep, so it's pointless to compare the rates of return in that way.
Apart from Epohh Farming the best/easiest/quickest way to get marks is to run the two daily space missions in Tae Dewa sector, and if you can, turn them in during a Reputation event (bumps the rewards for sector patrol from 60 to 75, for example).
The bottom line is that New Romulus is a much slower and less rewarding rep compared to Omega, and always will be unless/until they put in Borg style STFs for nice rewards.
i started playing STO a few weeks after it came out. 11 posts this time around. A random email about LoR from cryptic got me back into playing.
And I dont care about your stupid internet and/or forum conventions. I am not a forumites or dweller. Yes I know what a necro is, but the information in this post is still relevant as none of the Romulan Mark farming has changed any. If anyone is googling "Best way to farm Romulan Marks" this posting comes out at or near the top.
Get a life. Oh wait...

grinningsphinx is right, except for one thing - the game is not static, as there are a lot of changes. All the suggestions in this thread are horrendous in my opinion. Especially the one about the epohh. I prefer a straight forward way, just like the OP.
This is what I do when I know I will need Romulan Marks in the future:
- Wait till an event where the Marks are doubled
- Go to New Romulus.
- Talk to Foreman Kylor, accept and complete "New Romulus: Staging Area".
- Talk either to Admiral Valoth (Federation) or General K'vera (Klingon), accept "Lending a hand".
- Complete all assignments under the "Lending a hand" scattered via the transporters.
- Obtain around 172 marks + 15 marks + 150 marks = 337 marks in a relatively short time.
