because there IS no purpose to spending time on your ship, or even spending time in the so called "Starfield"
Disagree. I've found that plunking a few points into the appropriate perks had me both leveling up and making money faster from the comfort of my pilot's seat than running around completing quests on foot. I set out to unlock the achievement for visiting every system, but it's also really come in handy for progressing toward level 100 without doing something completely asinine like crafting 12 billion adaptive frames. I jump into a system, maybe encounter some enemies or eccentric friendlies, scan all the planets and moons within it from one spot (usually hundreds of XP and thousands of creds right there, just a minute or two), stop off at any SOS signals or derelict ships/stations in orbit or maybe a POI on the ground if I wanna stretch my legs, then move on to the next. Seen loads of new space encounters while doing this, including recruiting a companion I never met before who was floating up there, so... Dunno what you're doing with your virtual life, but I feel very much like a Captain Reynolds today.
