what can I do to correct this without jepordizing other faction standings?
Two things only.
First, easiest, most relevant : alter effective standings while not changing base ones - train "Diplomacy".
With L5 diplomacy, a roughly -8.74 base standing turns into a roughly -4.99 effective standing, which prevents the navies of that faction from attacking you while you're in that space.
Second, hardest, limited opportunities, run epic arc missions.
The epic arc missions standings rewards are unique in the fact they don't trigger derived standings.
As such, those are the only ways you can alter your base standings with one faction WITHOUT losing standings with the "enemies" of that faction.
