There is no quicker route for it but it will depend on another question. Are you familiar with 4x games? If so, jumping in with the AI on auto or suggest mode will be the fastest way.

Welcome aboard! Definitely start with the tutorials, then create a game in the smallest galaxy and no victory conditions, then set as much as you can to automated while you look around and start to get an idea of how things work. Then gradually change them to Suggest and then finally Manual Control.

Reading some of the AARs that go into detail will be a big help.

This may also help:
