Transcription from the flight recorder:

T+0y,0d,00:01:33 Pilot Dioly Kerman: __ "This is the Captain to the Cabin Leaders, status report. Common guys, you can do it - we trained for this." (on the intercom)

T+0y,0d,00:01:34 Pilot Dioly Kerman: __ Leadrin, call mayday please. I'll handle the passengers.

T+0y,0d,00:01:35 Copilot Leadrin Kerman: __ "MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY This is Kermas/SOSTV-01. KSC, do you hear?" (on the comm)

T+0y,0d,00:01:37 Pilot Dioly Kerman: __ "Cabin Leaders, get ahold of yourselves and remember the training! Status report!" (on the intercom)

T+0y,0d,00:01:38 Cabin Leader Tamara Kerman: __ "Cabin B to Captain. 1 injured by concussion, 3 unscratched." (on the intercom, with a shattered voice)

T+0y,0d,00:01:39 Pilot Dioly Kerman: __ "Good to know. You sounded weird, Tamara, are you the injured?" (on the intercom)

T+0y,0d,00:01:40 KSC ATC: __ "KSC here, we are aware. Help is on the way. What's your status?" (from the comm)

T+0y,0d,00:01:42 Cabin Leader Tamara Kerman: __ "Yes, but it's not major. I'm functional and waiting instructions. Oh, the cabin is a mess but in one piece." (on the intercom, with a firm voice now)

T+0y,0d,00:01:43 Copilot Leadrin Kerman: __ "KSC, please wait." (on the comm)

T+0y,0d,00:01:43 Pilot Dioly Kerman: __ "Good girl." (on the intercom)

T+0y,0d,00:01:45 Cabin Leader Ellbart Kerman: __ "Cabin A to Captain. 3 injured, I'm unscratched. All bruises, no broken bones, no concussions. But these guys will need help to walk for while. The cabin is pretty battered, but it's holding. Waiting instructions." (on the intercom)

T+0y,0d,00:01:46 Copilot Leadrin Kerman: __ "KSC, Kermas/SOSTV-01. 10 souls, 4 injured. Vessel on emergency power, no hull breaches. ETA for the rescue?" (on the comm)

T+0y,0d,00:01:47 Pilot Dioly Kerman: __ "You need assistance, Ellbart?" (on the intercom)

T+0y,0d,00:01:50 KSC ATC: __ "Uhh... Please wait for further instructions... We're working on it." (from the comm)

T+0y,0d,00:01:50 Cabin Leader Ellbart Kerman: __ "Yes, but not urgent - as long this boat stays afloat. I can't evacuate all of them by myself if an emergency arise - this thing will keep floating, right?" (on the intercom)

T+0y,0d,00:01:53 Copilot Leadrin Kerman: __ "That's a positive, no worries on that. The only danger we're facing is the risk of dying of boredom while waiting for the rescue, but that's all." (on the intercon)

T+0y,0d,00:01:55 Copilot Leadrin Kerman: __ Dioly, I don't think all of the guys are able to swim - so I'll check the supplies. I think we are going to stay here for some time, by that tone of voice of the ATC... I suggest getting out for stretching legs and sightseeing, saving a bit of Life Support for the night...
