Agreed. I think it's nice they decided to throw us a bone amidst the constant pressure, and it makes me think we'll see those two characters again. Don't be too surprised if they show up in SQ42, or as NPCs in the PU, or both! Dugan and Mad Dog are both likeable enough. Mass, the Banu in stasis in the hidden tunnels is probably the Duck's missing copilot. I bet we see him again too.
