No Man's Sky Next Fleet Expedition Guide
Amass your fleet and explore No Man Sky’s endless universe with Fleet Expeditions. This No Man’s Sky Next Fleet Expedition Guide will explain the basics of sending your ships out on an Expedition, repairing them, sending out multiple Expeditions at a time and how to be successful.

Before you are able to participate in the Expeditions you need to have your own Freighter. You can get a free Freighter or buy one, it’s up to you. Once you have a Freighter you must construct a single

No Man’s Sky Next Fleet Expedition Guide

You can send a single Expedition at a time per Fleet Command Station on your Capital Ship. You can construct additional Fleet Command Stations, with each station adding an additional Expedition that you can send out at a time.

There are three main aspects of Expedition missions. Trade, Combat and Industrial, there are also mixed that are a combination of the three. You want to make sure that you send ships built for the task. Sending Trade ships on Combat Expeditions will result in expensive repairs and potentially, even the loss of a ship. It’s always a good idea to send a Combat ship on another Expedition, such as Trade or Industrial, as there is a chance your other ships will encounter physical resistance. In short, Trade ships for Trade, Industry for Industrial and Combat for Combat and escorting your other ships.

If you want to drastically increase your chances of success, you need to ensure your Fleet Level matches the difficulty level of the Expedition. When choosing an Expedition you will see its difficulty rating in the upper right, below the duration of the Expedition. This ranges in difficulty from 1 to 5 stars. As you add ships your fleet rating, shown in the bottom right above Fuel, increases. You need to ensure your Fleet Rating at least matches the Difficulty Rating, although ideally you want to be above the difficulty rating.

If your ships get into trouble you will need to enter the assigned Fleet Command Station and speak with the Commander of the ship. They will inform you of any damages or problems with the mission, and then you can choose what to do. If a ship is damaged, it’s usually a good idea to abort mission and have them return for repairs.

To repair a Freighter you need to land on it (Marked by a red ship icon if they are damaged) and then assess the damage report provided by the Commander. You can then highlight the damaged aspects of the ship before heading in to repair. You will require a multitude of different ingredients so bring plenty of variety with you.
