Personally, if Some one had been shooting at an airlock from outside, I would have been seeing how fast I could get into my Vac-Suit, while all the bullhead doors were closing.
Seriously, "Civilian" bunny not in Spacesuit, in Space station we just fired on? Something is going on.
bunnys asked for a cease fire so suited up bunnys would be suspisious to the boading party me thinks
With life support potentially breached? Civilian Vac suits don't have armor plating. In this situation if your not wearing you Space Jammies, it's because some one took them away.
The EDF Troops are wearing Carapace armor that's been fitted over a basic Vacsuit, they are wearing Man-packs, and probably have magnets mounted in their boots. in case of Grav failure. (man-pack: Maneuver-pack.)
At this point I'd stuff the civilians in Evac balls, and shove them out the air lock. then pop the exterior doors on Bulk Storage.
uumm don't you dump all that carrot juice in bulk storage, could cause a riot!
The station has layers of pressure doors and airlocks, so by the time the EDF types get an eye to eye with the locals, they are fairly deep into the station. They are staying suited up for the moment just to be sure.
