- Undocked from ISS: November 29, 2004, 09:29 UTC (from Pirs module)
- Docked to ISS: November 29, 2004, 09:53 UTC (to nadir port of Zarya)

25th manned flight to ISS.
The launch of Expedition 10 was delayed beyond its scheduled October 9, 2004 launch date. During preflight testing, an explosive bolt was accidentally activated on the Soyuz TMA-5 spacecraft. The resulting damage was repaired prior to launch.
The docking maneuver had to be done manually, as the approach by the automatic system was too fast.
The undocking was done manually as well, as a cautionary measure to save power on a faulty battery.
