Sophie Adenot and Raphaël Liégeois

They will fly in early 2026 (Starliner-2 or Crew-11) and late 2026 (Crew-11 or Starliner-2) respectively.

Recap of the futur USCV missions assignements :

Crew-9 (August 2024) : Cardman - Hague - Wilson - Gorbunov
Starliner-1 (February 2025) : Tingle - Fincke - Kutryk - Yui
Crew-10 (August 2025) : NASA TBC - Agency TBC - Onishi - Peskov
Starliner-2 (February 2026) : NASA TBC - NASA TBC - Agency TBC - Adenot
Crew-11 (August 2026) : NASA TBC -  Agency TBC - Liégeois - Russian TBD

Note that Starliner flights might exchange slots with the next crew dragon mission (Crew-10 before Starliner-1 and Crew-11 before Starliner-2)

Starliner-2 (February 2026) : NASA TBC - NASA TBC - Agency TBC - Adenot
Crew-11 (August 2026) : NASA TBC -  Agency TBC - Liégeois - Russian TBD

Crew-10 will presumably have two NASA astronauts, since there won't be anyone from CSA or ESA on it and there aren't rumors (that I know of, at least) of anyone from other countries flying, right? Also, does anyone know whether there is likely to be a JAXA astronaut on Crew-11 or whether their next seat after Onishi would be in 2027?

There is the possibility of a UAE flight, that is why I put "Agency TBD". After their Is no communication or rumors currently but maybe we can be surprise

Adenot can also fly on the pilot position.

On Crew-10 or Crew-11? Sorry if I'm missing something obvious.

Why not somebody from ESA, two year without a European on the ISS?

We don't know why not other than that's just how the seats lined up; all we really know is that it is the case and that Adenot's seat in 2026 is the next ESA seat. I suppose it kind of averages out with, e.g., Pesquet and Maurer and Cristoforetti back to back to back.

Their noting said or even rumors on a UAE flight but maybe we will heard something on that in the coming months... that's why I fink we can't be sure at 100% that it will a NASA seat or an other agency

Sorry! I misunderstood you. I thought you were saying that there definitively were rumors. Thanks!

It takes around 18 months to prepare for a increment to the ISS.
This corresponds to the announcements of foreign astronaut assignments (ESA, JAXA and CSA).
Adenot begins these 18 months of training until Q2 2026, followed by Liégeois.

Given the duration of training, crew-10 has already been formed for several months (even if it is not known).

The question is when a crew specializes for the Dragon or Starliner?

Probably about 1 year ago, if we look at the exchange between Yui and Onishi.
So, maybe Liégeois will fly before Adenot.

I'm not sure that we can use the Yui-Onishi swap as an example. The way I read it, for some reason, Yui got bounced off Crew-9, and Starliner-1 (currently the next flight) had the next available seat. Since it was announced that Adenot will fly first (but neither of them has been attached to a specific flight yet), the only way I could see that not happening is if Starliner-2 and Crew-11 swap places close enough to flight that Adenot and Liégeois don't have enough training time to change ships (as you indicate), but I think that the two flights either won't trade places or will trade places so far in advance that that won't be an issue.

In other news, https://www.gctc.ru/main.php?id=155 has been updated, and there's some interesting stuff there. Aleksei Zubritskiy is now the backup FE1 for MS-26 even though Sergey Mikaev is still the prime FE1 for MS-27, and Jonny Kim is Don Pettit's backup.

The link below this paragraph (I hope Google Translate works) seems to imply that Sergey Mikaev is now on the same crew as Sergei Kud-Skverchkov, which would mean that Zubritskiy is now on the MS-27 prime crew and that Mikaev is now on the backup crew.

 Not to step on anyone's toes but has the speculation thread been folded back into the main flight crew assignments one?

No. As best as I recall the moderator's guidelines when the other thread became necessary, this thread is for (1) confirmed facts (e.g., when the Crew-9 crew assignments came out) and (2) logical inferences therefrom, and the other thread is for other things, like when Jonny Kim might fly (before he became Don Pettit's backup). If you're concerned about what I posted, I believe that this fits within (2) above, since it is about the activities of actual crews.

I thought this thread was for ACTUAL assignment announcements and discussions like the previous page or two were intended to be in the "crew assignments questions" thread.  Please move discussions like this there.  Thank you.

I welcome the correction of the moderators if I am wrong, but I did not understand it to be that limited. Per zubenelgenubi (page 183) and I believe other moderators as well, things anchored in facts or logical deductions therefrom are allowed here. I am just as loathe as all of you are to go back to the unbridled theories and speculation and what-not of two years or so ago--that nearly drove me away for good. This, however, is not that. That being said, I yield to the moderators if they want to chime in.

Sorry to keep poking on this but it was my understanding that the thread called "Flight crew assignments questions" was created specifically for this purpose. 

The very first line in the very first post of "Flight crew assignments questions"  says:

"Dedicated thread for questions, to keep the main thread clean for actual assignments".  Emphasis mine.
