If you're willing to use the developer.exe, there is an option that unlocks all research for all players. That's probably the easiest way to get what you want.
you get all research though right? Even other factions?
I didn't think so, but I haven't really tested it. I certainly haven't noticed my TEC capitalships auto leveling up as if I had the Advent's mass transcendence.
That said, you do automatically get all artifacts for some reason.
