Describe an expedition.

In No Man’s Sky, you must complete linear missions known as expeditions. They have a narrative that connects the goals, so things will first be hazy until intensifying toward the conclusion. There are five Phases in each one. Before a Phase is finished, you must complete a number of Milestones. To unlock the final Expedition prize, the goal is to finish all five Phases. This last prize in No Man’s Sky Expedition 8: Polestar is a special Organic Frigate. As long as you’ve unlocked them, you can access all Expedition rewards from any save file in No Man’s Sky.
