This little blog is fictional. It is in no way canon to the story of Subnautica.
In this setting, Alterra launched a salvage team to Planet 4546B to recover data about the Aurora's crash landing on the planet.
://launch failed...partial data recovered
EMPLOYEE #42 PERSONAL PDA, ENTRY #57
Another day, another boring time on the Aurora. Heck, I was so bored, I considered going to the VR suite over on the leisure deck, but nobody wants to play with those nerds. Bad news is they finally locked up the PRAWN bay, so me and my buddies can't go out for a joyride just yet. Good news is we're about to be starside. Planet 4546B is a couple days away. As protocol states, we're supposed to have our AEP suits on by now so we can go to our training exercises, which I'm doing right now. By the way, I'm late.
VOICE LOG FRAGMENT TAKEN FROM DAY #433, T-2 DAYS TO ARRIVAL ON PLANET 4546B

ALL EMPLOYEES: "SIR, YES SIR!"
