The transfer crew objective has this description:

Transfer any crew into any vessel from another mission in orbit of <body> to achieve this goal.

One thing this doesn't make clear is, do I really need to dock for this? Docking is of course the easiest method, but I could also, say, go EVA and jetpack between vessels. There are a few reasons why I might want to do this:

  • If I don't have the technology for docking
  • If I have a rescue target near the same body
  • If I aborted a landing but have the fuel and space for a rendezvous maneuver before returning

So would this count?


Yep, you can! That's usually how I get the transfer milestones. One thing to consider: Depending on how it checks for the transfer, the rescue target combination might not work.

  • I suspect EVA may actually be mandatory: due to the internals of how KSP works, two docked vessels are treated as a single vessel.

  • I think you're right.

  • @Mark I know I've gotten it with docking; it likely considers the individual pods, not the ship as a whole.
