Didn't think things could get much grimmer for this crew, but this latest recovery mission was downright brutal as well as emotionally exhaustive. You did a great job of presenting it as such.
I liked the focus on Jachim here as well. He was the one crewmember most in need of a serious attitude adjustment, in my opinion, and thanks to coming face to face with the place of his greatest failure, or at least greatest tragedy, he seems well under way of starting to appreciate what he has again, instead of pining for what he doesn't.
So I guess, finding a good friend of his alive after all this time helped as well, even if it seemed a little bit convenient from a story-telling perspective (not sure if you explained how he managed to survive without food or water for ten weeks). I liked it nevertheless, especially because you managed to turn a rather unlikeable character into a human being again.
