Buy rank 1 & rank 2 gifts from the gift vendor on the fleet and get their affaction to 8k with those.

Affection does two things : it makes you crit the mission more and it makes you do the missions faster.

The only Tier 6 missions that have Rich yields are Companion Gifts missions, and they're only Rich because they return Grade 5 Gifts (since there are no Grade 6 Gifts).
