I agree with all of these, except with the win conditions. The Legend & Economic win conditions were recently made more difficult to achieve. Although, it can really vary on what the game deals you for quests. I had a lvl 40 ship and got a Legendary quickly (like 10 mins on a lvl 42 sector) because of the number of bosses and veterans I tackled. Economic is still more difficult to achieve IMHO, but then again it's more fun blowing the crap out of everything as opposed to hocking info, so I generally don't try for an Economic win anyway.
As for what's resistant/vulnerable to what, floating over the Structure, Shields, Armor in the character menu will tell you what's resistant to what.
