Corrected entry: The reason for sacrificing Rosie (not sending a rescue party out for her), following her crash, is given by Hunter, when he says "We are running on fumes", suggesting that they urgently need to land, and the Rapiers are seen flying back and forth in the equivalent of a holding pattern, but since it was established earlier in the film that the Rapiers can totally shut down and power down their engines, they could have powered down, conserving fuel, and given the rescuers time to save Rosie. It's not like they need their engines to maintain lift, as do conventional aircraft, they are in space.Talon
Corrected entry: Following Rosie's crash into the flight deck (after her collision with a Kilrathi fighter), a remote operated bulldozer is sent out to push her fighter off the flight deck, when it does, her fighter falls straight down off the deck, as it would on a planet with gravity, but it is space so it should have just floated away.Talon
