How Long Would You Survive Marooned On An Alien Planet?

How would you fare in an alien environment? Would you even survive, let alone escape? What if you had to interact with (possibly dangerous) alien species native to the planet, whereas you couldn't even tell which plants and animals were edible? Would you survive?

You are a passenger aboard a starship heading for [insert system name here] when the captain issues a red alert to the entire vessel; the ship is critically damaged and is on a crash course with a medium-sized planet. Estimated survivors are NONE. Escape pods are going quickly, and there is no guarantee that you will be able to get to one on time. What do you do? Once again, could you survive a crash and alien planet? Are there even other people out there?
