I'm new to the game just started a couple days ago and have a some questions. How long does it take to rank up to the next tier?
Not much. If you play an hour or two every day, you should easily hit level 50 in under a month by playing all the Featured Episode missions.

How far can a free player get without spending any money? How does one go about obtaining enough currency (dilithium I think?) to buy the next tier of starship?
Pretty much what the others have said, you get 1 ship token at levels 10, 20, 30 and 40 that you can exchange for a free ship. You also get 1 shuttle token that lets you get a shuttle for free the first time you encounter a shuttle-only mission. These ships and shuttle are more than sufficient for anything the game throws at you (except PvP) if you choose your ship carefully.
