Why are you reluctant? Did you check V$UNDOSTAT? It tells you how many undo
blocks are used at any single time and how many active transactions there
were since the database startup (the TXNCOUNT value is cumulative).

As for the query, to rewrite it properly, I'd have to have some business
knowledge. I also notice that you don't have system statistics (no cpu
costing). Do you have histograms for all involved columns?
What percentage of the data do you want to retrieve? If you want to report
on the better part of the tables, then the plan might be right and you
may want to use brute force and change parallel degrees of the tables read
by the full table scan. The query looks like a star schema but getting
ORA-1555 indicates that you have an OLTP database. That means that bitmap
indexes are out of the question.
