It seems, that Dan Burbank is NASA´s Director of Operations at at the TsPK.
The third round of Doug Wheelock in this function looks like a really short one.
Maybe Mr. Cassutt does have some information for us?

The answer from GCTC about Mr. Burbank:
"He is the Director of the NASA office in the Gagarin Research&Test Cosmonaut Training Center, that's why he was on that event."

This post states Jessica Meir was beginning her training as a member of the Expedition 60/61 backup crew.  I have never seen who is training as backup for 58/59 or 59/60.  Anyone know who they might be?

Andrew Morgan will be a backup for 58/59!

Besides Astronauts Boe, Behnken, Hurley and Williams...are any other astronauts "assigned" to SpaceX and Boeing commercial flights?
I saw a preliminary schedule that had a 4 member crew (3 NASA / 1 CSA-JAXA or ESA) flying a Boeing mission after the initial 2 member flight.
Thank you.

I have no inside information, but I'd be willing to bet dollars to donuts that Doug Wheelock will be on USCV-1.

Is Noguchi definitely attached to a Soyuz crew? My impression was that he was aimed at a late 2019 launch, which would imply a USCV?

No info to support this - but Stephanie Wilson wouldn't be a total shock to me either for an early Commercial Flight as she went from a Management Astronaut following around the end of the Shuttle Program, to back on the active list.

Yes, he is currently assigned to the back-up crew of Soyuz MS-13.

A Boeing astronaut is on the first CST-100 flight. A better than even chance that this will be Chris Ferguson.

Mr. Ferguson said this four years ago

“So how about you? Would you like to do it?” I quickly inquired.
“I don’t know. Sure I’d like to go to space again, who wouldn’t like to go to space,” Ferguson mused, as we chuckled.
“But it’s a business for young, steely eyed missile men,” he replied, taking himself out of the running. … Maybe …

I'm wondering if it's possible that some of the crewmembers assigned to Soyuz backup crews could wind up later being assigned to CCV launches, instead of Soyuz?

For the crew members’ round-trip to the ISS, the mission will employ the Russian Soyuz spacecraft or the new US manned spacecraft now being developed by a private company. This consequently requires me to complete the Soyuz spacecraft left-seater training as well as training for a new type of spacecraft that will become a leading player in future manned spaceflight.

I apologize for the belated reply; I've been off-forum for a while.

In short, I owe an apology re: my commentary on other's opinions of Mr. Abbey.  (Yes, that was a "freshman" mistake.)

I do look forward to purchasing and reading Mr. Cassutt's new book.  I hope, if possible, that he'll do a book-signing in the DC area.

Sincerely,
