I just discovered that a relatively painless way to get a full set of blue/purple items for my ship and crew is to spend 2 hours in a star cluster solely scanning every anomaly I can find.

At commander level, I think I can craft a full set of purples with about 1000 research materials of various types and 5000 dilithium.
Welcome to crafting...
I am curious to know how that works out for you at higher levels, since the dilithium cost will rise significantly for even numered items.
Each rank gets to choose from either an odd or even level item. The odd level items are slightly weaker than the even level items, but its a not a very big difference. The way I see it, I get to choose where I want to spend my dilithium for an added boost in my equipment while the rest of my gear is still pretty competitive.
