Unfortunately not. I think it might be a issue with the servers. The bad thing is I'm not sure what I want to do. I could hire another Crew member and start training them up, but if my Crew member comes back after a patch then I'll have wasted all that time (time I've already wasted) on someone I'll just end up firing. And a few of my combat ships are built around having that experienced pilot as backup, so I really need that Crew mate. It ruined the FC update for me.
