Boeing Astronaut Chris Ferguson shared the following statement today (Aug. 25) regarding NASA's Starliner-1 crew assignment:
The Boeing team is honored that NASA assigned astronaut Dr. Jeanette Epps to the crew of Starliner-1, Boeing's first operational mission to the International Space Station.

Jeanette will be a part of an important and history-making flight, and we're excited to welcome her to the Starliner team. Jeanette's crewmates, Suni Williams and Josh Cassada, are regulars at our Florida facilities and are training in Houston. We're looking forward to getting to know her just as well as we progress toward this flight.

From Suni Williams (via Twitter):
A huge congratulations to Dr. Jeanette Epps for joining the Starliner team. Specifically, I cannot wait for her to join our crew, CTS-1, Starliner-1, to go to the International Space Station. Congratulations, looking forward to working with you and flying with you Jeanette.
From Josh Cassada (via Twitter):
A huge congratulations to my friend and new crewmate Jeanette Epps! I am so excited to have you join us riding the Atlas V, flying the Starliner to the International Space Station and then living and working there for six months. I am so excited.

Just a couple of things I think we need to get sorted out: I know we both claim Michigan, so I am not going to arm wrestle you for it, I've seen you in the gym, so maybe we can split it? You take down state, I take northern Michigan? Or we can split it east-west, we can use I-75, but we can get that sorted out.

The only other thing we need to get sorted out is on Starliner, I call shotgun.

Hey, huge congrats! Welcome to the team Jeanette. We'll see you soon.

From Jeanette Epps (via Twitter):
I am super excited to join Suni Williams and Josh Cassada on the first operational Boeing crew mission to the International Space Station. I have flown in helicopters with Suni flying and I have in the backseat of a T-38 with Josh flying and they are both wonderful people to work with, so I am looking forward to the mission. Thank you.

Good news. My opinion was that if she wasn't assigned to Starliner-1 or Crew 2 or 3, that NASA had no intention of flying her.

I wonder who will be the fourth crew member: from CSA or ESA and when will it be announced?
