I really enjoyed the “rescue the stricken gas surveyors” story. Screwed it up a bit by misunderstanding the end conditions (oh, hey, do we have spoiler tags here?) - I returned to a planet which qualified for a condition which I didn’t expect to qualify, because I wasn’t paying close enough attention in the conversation when the conditions were described and afterwards there was no meta record (in the questlog) of what the condition actually was. So I got a different outcome to the one I’d intended.
It also meant I failed the “Take videotape to other side of cluster” contract which I’d taken just beforehand, as I ran out of time - I’m guessing this is by design No option to say “Screw your videotapes, screw your sanctions, I was rescuing survivors, screw you” tho?
