Interesting subject. Well it would depend on communication. If I could start a dialogue with the aliens I might help them. If I could not then I would
ignore them and recover the craft.
The craft would be more profitable than the aliens would be. IMO, one could recover enough of the craft one might be able to reproduce or even repair
enough of it to power a vehicle.
Now what would the profit be from say a power plant on an alien space ship be worth?
As for the aliens if they could communicate, that would help my decision whether or not to help them. If they could communicate with me then I could
decide to help them, care for them, and try and treat their wounds.
I certanly would not give the craft over to the authorities. I would not recognise any jurisdiction any person from any agency would have over the
craft or the aliens themselves.
Course in this cenerio the aliens would of course have to barter. I mean services rendered wouldnt be free after all. There of course would be a
premium for lodging, shelter, protection, medical care rendered. makes you wonder if aliens would have some sort of currency in which to barter
these goods and services?
Perhaps a craft would be justified payment. I mean if there was a way for them to contact others to request evacuation, I suppose then a proper trade
would be in order. Their lives, freedom, and security for a small craft and instruction on how to properly use it.
