"Mice from NASAís Rodent Research-6 study also will return live to Earth for additional study."

Is this the first time living creatures have returned on a Dragon?

No.  Live mice have been returned in Dragons on at least 1 previous mission (CRS-11; RR-5).  Other live animals may have been returned previously.  Things like fruit flies or zebra fish, etc.

Wow, they are trying out controlling the release from the ground instead of by astronauts on board the station this time.  I assume it's to save on crew time, but will they eventually be willing to run VV departure ops without a crewmember manning the CUCU Crew Command Panel (CCP)?  If not, how does ground command of the release reduce crew needs?  Is it maybe reducing from a 2-man operation to 1-man?

The crew are responsible for initiating the Dragon departure once #Canadarm2 has maneuvered clear of it.
