Current best Fed rank grind?

Ok, like title says....what is the best fed rank grind? I am a veteran Cmndr that reset account months back and I’m ready to get my Vette again. I’m currently doing ceos/sothis data runs but without board flipping now it’s very slow. I have searched a bunch but can’t find any current/relevant info. Any help would be much appreciated. o7 Cmndrs
 
Data runs are really slow at higher ranks.
Go find a station that was attacked in fed space and evacuate passengers.
Else, settle in a fed system (search for one with lots of fed factions, preferably industrial and in outburst) and stack supply/delivery missions and whatever other missions might suit your play style and try to pick only mission that gives lots of ++++ in rep.
 
I evacuated passengers with anaconda. It has fastest progress. Last three ranks to backdoor admiral took 2 days.
1. I chose rank on every mission, not only from fractions allied to Federation, and it affected federation rank too.
2. Mission count restored after exhausting in 30 minutes, and so i’v set alarm, close game and doing other thing
 
Yep become a taxi... mind numbing boring but fastest way...
If you want lots of money do tourist taxi runs...
If you want easy, do damaged station to rescue ship runs...

Most youtube players who do videos on ED have done one on it...
The issue is damaged stations change location so you will have to search web sites to locate Fed stations that are currenty still damaged and not begun repair mode...
https://inara.cz/galaxy-stations-damaged/ only 6 damaged stations... as of April 10th
If your doing it just to get the Corvette then it won't take long... fit a heat sink just incase...
not my video others are available
still valid but as others stated mission regen time has been extended...

Thanks guys! I guess I will have to fly back home to Jameson Memorial and swap my battle conda over to a rescue conda.

Federal rank is just SLOW than ever now.

For some reason the thargoids are not atacking fed systems/stations anymore ( I bet that is a BGS MESS)

The best system for rescue now is Exigus that have 2 federal factions on system, but the boards just sucks now too, so - you will need to wait 20-30 minutes until the excelent board implemented by fdev work and put 12-15 Rescue missions again (Missions that you can do in a single run, then will need to wait more 30 minutes docked.)

All the old Data delivery missions systems for federation are dry by now, some fdev nerfed/added more stations to make the grind even worse.
Sothis/Ceos is still a thing, but you need to have patience and skill to evade from 3-4 interdictions EVERY station you fly to (If you picked delivery missions) - The missions dry very fast too, since the excelent board just generate 2-4 missions per 15 minutes. (Most of they will be useless mining missions or smuggle missions)

Python is best for station rescue. The speed of landing far outweighs the extra passenger capacity of an Anaconda, which you'll rarely fill anyway.

If one is interested in "RANKING UP" with either the Federal or the Empire one should only accept mission's from related brokers. Thus if one is ranking up for the Federal as to obtain the coveted Corvette. Accepting any mission from any other broker but a broker affiliated with the Federal will prove to be less productive. Basically one shouldn't moon light, either do all your work (grinding) for one or the other. Same works for those ranking up for the Alliance.
 
Thargoids have avoided EMPIRE stations and have returned to attack a FED station...

With the Thursday tick over... there are only two fed factions in system... the catch is its ~50kls when in system... not to far ...
