I am beyond terrified that something goes wrong and not enough usable fuel is available for a new attempt.
YEP it has Thursters on the MLM started firing after docking whlle leak checks where being carried out station went out of attitude control to 45 degrees had to use Zvezda and Progress to regain attitude looked dicey for a few minutes

With all the problems its has so far, let's hope that it doesn't end up frying the entire station once they go in and flip the light switch on! 😛

"Prichal" module will go to the ISS on November 27 (by the way, the Russian words "Prichal" and "Pirs" designate the same object)

It seems there was a serious problem (another) after docking.

Nauka left-for-dead main engines suddenly ignited and there was no way to shut them off, leading to a loss of the station attitude control. They had to fire Zvezda and Progress engines to counter the thrust and wait for the tanks to be empty.

Seems things are better now, but some guys in mission control certainly 'were about to turn blue'

Not the main engines (which are called the "DKS") but the attitude control thrusters ("DPS") located on the left and right sides of the spherical node compartment.

Good thing it wasn't able to kick in the mains.
I believe they have now added to their post dock checklist 'Underwear change'. :)

according to psychological theory, human acceptance of the inevitable is divided into five stages
1) Denial and isolation 2) Anger 3) Bargaining 4) Depression 5) Acceptance and here you are flying on a tin can to the moon
