steedcrugeon Posted September 5, 2016 Share Posted September 5, 2016 I'm curious as to the general consensus of the question. As a rule (if you have one) do you try to rescue the crew from a stranded ship or do you attempt to salvage it, and drag it back across the system? My present situation, which brought about this query, is that I have embarked on my first manned Duna Mission, in a vessel which had sufficient dV to get to Duna orbit and back from LKO. Unfortunately my trajectory was interrupted by the rude arrival of Minmus SOI which then required some 444m/s delta-V to correct. This will result in the vessel having enough fuel to get there but not get back now. I have a lander arriving separately prior to the main ship (autonomous delivery) so I'm already planning 1 rendezvous, but I'm weighing my options to see whether I leave the original vessel as a temporary station on Duna orbit or bring the whole thing back. This is a science game (I have been playing maybe a month or so now) and haven't realised all the tech yet so no nuclear drives, everything LFO at present. So to the original question, do you guys and girls tend to bring back everything you can or do you start little 'Stations of Opportunity'?
