I seem to recall reading that SpaceX has no intention of requalifying used
Crew Dragon capsules for additional manned flights - it's just too
expensive and time-consuming - substantially cheaper just to build another
one. Though apparently they are looking at using filght-used Crew Dragons
as unmanned cargo capsules.

They're going to reuse this one for the unmanned in-flight abort test
coming up, but that'll be it for this particular capsule - it'll never fly
