In Out There: Oceans of Time, you can go on expeditions to discover different biomes. This additional feature allows you to manage your crew members and hone in on their specialities. It is unlike spatial exploration where you manage resources.

To attempt an expedition, you need to scan a planet to reveal any anomalies. repare your team composed of 4 crew members and send them out to explore the planet.
Each member possesses their own class, health points, action points and competences. Those statistics are created randomly when the character is generated, they will vary depending on their class, rarity and can be upgraded when the character levels up.
Crew members all possess action points. You need to manage them carefully as once you run out, you won’t be able to use the character’s competences or make choices during the story. During the story you can obtain bonuses and rewards, which can be new crew members or unlocking a new story point.
Once your team is ready, you can go explore! You will discover new biomes and randomized maps each time you attempt an expedition and you will encounter hazards: from the environment and story events. They can affect your party by giving them maluses or bonuses. Hence why the creation of your party is so important.
