    There is a repeatable daily quest that awards a series of datachips corresponding to bits of the story that lead up to the events of Star Trek Online.

    For Federation (and Federation allied Romulan) characters it is acquired from Commander Viala at Starfleet Academy and is called "History 101: Alpha Quadrant from 2380". For Klingon (and Klingon allied Romulan) characters it is a available from Ch'toh at the Klingon Academy and is called "Learning the Lore of the Empire".

    It is available every day and each time you complete it you get one datachip at random. You must use the datachip from your inventory* to "discover" the related piece of lore. There are 165 required for the achievement and it can drop duplicates.

    A complete list is here:

    You can attempt each day with each of your characters* and you can trade with other players (including using the exchange).

    * Make sure to use the datachips on the same character as it (probably) is not tracked account wide.

    As mentioned by Flezza, this achievement is tracked in game as a series of accolades. From the in game menu (press cn_start), go to Missions > Mission Journal > Accolades > In Progress and then scroll down to Lore Accolades to see them.

    Updated to include the correct quest name after comment from Lonesquiff.

    I've noticed my individual chip accolades were registering immediately, but the volume accolades were not until I left the area or logged out and came back in. When the next area loaded, that's when my volume accolade showed up. Remember this when you want your final chip to pop your achievement.

    If you're playing several different characters, you can mail your datachips to one character, to make it easier to make the best progress. I am playing a Federation and a Klingon Empire character. Instead of doing this with 2 separate accolade lists, I mail chips from my Klingon to my Fed so he could add to his bigger accolade head start. It works.

    Any Klingon Empire character has to be at least level 10 (Lt Commander) to receive datachips from the library computer. Federation characters can be level 4 or higher to get datachips from the library computer. (thanks Galren) Also, Romulan Republic characters can join in the 2409 collecting after they choose an affiliation after the From the Ashes story arc.

    Press cn_A at a mail station, then press cn_RB to get to the Compose Mail tab.
    Highlight the "To:" box and press cn_A.
    Type a @-symbol then your gamertag. Press cn_start to submit.
    --- @{gamertag} --- (example: @thedude722)
    Highlight the "Subject:" box and press cn_A. Type anything and press cn_start to submit.
    Highlight the small inventory slot under the large 'body' box of the email. Press cn_A.
    Highlight the datachip you wish to mail to your other character and press cn_A.
    Press cn_X to Send the mail.

    Your receiving character must be at a Mail station to receive the attached goods. Go to your Inbox and highlight the mail with your goods. Press cn_Y to secure the item into your inventory. Use the datachip from your inventory and boom. Accolade.

    Only use the datachips you need. Sell the rest on the Exchange so you can afford to buy gear or any missing datachips when you get a near-full collection.

    All the solutions posted below are correct, but they are missing the fast method. At the exchange if you search for "Datachip" under the "All" subsection you will be presented with a list of all datachips needed for the various achievements. You can then buy any chip you need to compete your list. They can be expensive so I recommend checking daily to see which are available cheap.

    This method relies almost entirely on credits. The best way to make quick credits are anomalies within missions. By completing the wave match puzzle, resources will be awarded in 3-5 (usually) increments. I have found that all resource types obtained through this manor can be sold for 10k credits each. Also look at other objects in your inventory that could have worth and search for them on the exchange. The more credits you make the better. I have seen some guides that let Klingon characters make around 600k credits/hour, but I have not tried it as I am playing as the Federation.

    Finally, dont forget to get your free datachip by completing the History 101/102 quests daily. Even if you dont get the chip you need, you can sell it to someone else who needs it.
