OA, ST and SW: The Big Three
#15
Wouldn't anticipation of some types of low probability events (i.e. accidents) have been taken into account during the planning for the expedition? For example, it seems reasonable to me that the expedition's members would have been required to have one or more types of augmentations which would facilitate communication among isolated groups, and to have tested them at various times during their preparations.

Given the long history of catastrophes happening to explorers, I think it's likely that at least some types of incidents would have been provided for, even if not everyone was aware of that part of the planning. Of course, you (as author) have to be careful about what is revealed at which time in the story in order to avoid Deus ex Machina situations.
