The name Babkin is missing. That means that Soyuz MS-12 will be a two-person-crew.
And instead of Shannon Walker we can see the name Hammock-Koch. It seems that she changed to the prime crew.

Babkin has been off the 59 expedition roster for several weeks now.
Current plan for MS-12 is a 3 person crew, with the 3rd person staying just 10 days then returning with the MS-10 crew.

Any word  who will be on  the next Soyuz MS -12 crew to lift off to the ISS?  Any word on the revision for the EXP 59 patch?

Was Oleg Skripochka assigned to another mission?
Wonder why Ovchinin and Hague weren't announced for Soyuz MS-12 at the same time?

NASA Astronaut Nick Hague Set for New Space Station Mission

Mark Garcia Posted on December 3, 2018

At the post-launch news conference for the Expedition 58 crew, Roscosmos and NASA officials announced that NASA astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin of Roscosmos, who were forced to abort their recent mission Oct. 11 to the International Space Station, are now scheduled to launch again Feb. 28, 2019, from the Baikonour Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

Hague, Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Christina Hammock Koch will launch aboard the Russian Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft and join NASA astronaut Anne McClain, David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency, and Oleg Konenenko of Roscosmos as station’s Expedition 59 crew.

Hague and Koch will serve as flight engineers for Expeditions 59 and 60. Ovchinin will serve as a flight engineer on Expedition 59 and the commander of Expedition 60. The trio will return to Earth in October 2019 as members of Expedition 60.

All three crew members will participate in a news conference at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston that will air live on NASA TV and the agency’s website.

This will be Koch’s first spaceflight. Flight dynamics specialists determined Hague and Ovchinin achieved enough altitude on their aborted climb to orbit to qualify for previous spaceflight status, making this Hague’s second spaceflight and Ovchinin’s third.

No his flight is switching assigned spacecraft due to the Soyuz MS-10 Launch Abort. The previous crew of Soyuz MS-12 is awaiting a new launch slot and Soyuz vehicle assignment.

MEDIA ADVISORY M18-185

Media Invited to News Conference, Interviews with Next Space Station.

NASA astronauts Nick Hague and Christina Hammock Koch will discuss their upcoming mission to the International Space Station in a news conference at 3 p.m. EST Wednesday, Dec. 12, at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The news conference will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed on the agency’s website. Hague will be available for in person and remote media interviews afterward.

Hague, Koch, and their crewmate Alexey Ovchinin of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, are scheduled to launch Feb. 28, 2019, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the space station aboard the Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft, commanded by Ovchinin.

To request credentials to participate in person or to reserve an interview opportunity, U.S. reporters must contact Johnson's newsroom at 281-483-5111 by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11. Reporters who wish to participate in the news conference by telephone must call Johnson's newsroom no later than 2:45 p.m. Dec. 12. Those following the briefing on social media may ask questions using #askNASA.

Hague, Koch, and Ovchinin will join Anne McClain of NASA, David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency, and Oleg Kononenko  of Roscosmos for Expedition 59, returning the orbital laboratory to a full complement of six crew members. McClain, Saint-Jacques and Kononenko will have been living and working on the station as a crew of three for about two months. Hague and Koch will serve as flight engineers for Expeditions 59 and 60. Ovchinin will serve as a flight engineer on Expedition 59 and commander of Expedition 60. The trio will return to Earth in October.

During the planned six-month mission, the station crew will take part in about 250 research investigations and technology demonstrations not possible on Earth to advance scientific knowledge of Earth, space, physical, and biological sciences. Science conducted on the space station continues to yield benefits for humanity and will enable future long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space. The crew is also scheduled to be aboard during test flights of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, which will resume human spaceflight launches from U.S. soil.

Hague and Soyuz commander Ovchinin returned to Earth safely after their mission was aborted Oct. 11. The booster malfunctioned during ascent, but the spacecraft’s abort system worked as designed and pulled the crew away safely, resulting in a landing in Kazakhstan.

This will be Koch’s first spaceflight. Flight dynamics specialists determined Hague and Ovchinin achieved enough altitude on their aborted climb to orbit to qualify for previous spaceflight status, making this Hague’s second spaceflight and Ovchinin’s third.

Hague is a native of Hoxie, Kansas, and a colonel in the U.S. Air Force. Prior to his selection, he was part of the Air Force Fellows program in Washington, where he worked as an adviser to the U.S. Senate on matters of national defense and foreign policy. He earned a bachelor’s degree in astronautical engineering from the U.S. Air Force Academy and a master’s degree in aeronautical and astronautical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. NASA selected him as an astronaut in 2013.

Koch, who grew up in Jacksonville, North Carolina, earned bachelor’s degrees in electrical engineering and physics and a master’s degree in electrical engineering from North Carolina State University in Raleigh. Her career includes experience as an electrical engineer, focusing on space science instrument design, at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and the Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Lab, in Laurel, Maryland. She also worked as a research associate with the U.S. Antarctic Program, completing several deployments, including a winter at the South Pole. Her work at remote scientific research stations went on to include sessions as a field engineer in the Arctic and as station chief with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in American Samoa. NASA also selected her as an astronaut in 2013.

Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."
