An Expeditionary Force is the deployment of a number of Star Fleet vessels to explore beyond the Federation's border, especially away from established bases. Though separated from the Federation by dozens or even hundreds of Light-Years, Expeditionary Forces are essentially self-sustaining with an organic logistics capability and with a full array of supporting arms.
