YA fantasy novel set 350 years in the future under a corporate dictatorship which reanimates dead people to use as disposable slave soldiers.
So the setup is a medical/research station orbiting a planet. The shuttles used to come and go have been stolen. Four recently reanimated, cryogenically preserved kids, and a dog, are stuck on the station and want to escape. Their plan is to crash the station into the planet.
The station has some basic steering/engines/directional propulsion normally used for orbit decay correction but isn't really designed for re-entry other than being strong enough not to totally come apart if it falls out of orbit so it (and its tech) can be salvaged.
The kids have access to the station's anti-grav system and the cryopreservation tank that they came out of. The way I'm thinking of doing it now is to have them hack the station to sabotage the orbit co-ordinates and activate the anti-grav. Refill their cryotank with water and get back in it (breathing kit of some cool futuristic nature - with something figured out for the dog) and close it on themselves (one of them is phobic of drowning because that's how he died so that makes for extra drama) riding out the crash in submerged zero-g.
So my question is... do you think it's
a) good reading/cool drama?
b) plausible in fiction/worldbuilding terms?
c) not cheating the unspoken rules of suspended disbelief?
