Could be a warp storm. They send for help but have no idea if / when it would come.

Those bastard warp storms, eh? Jerks. I feel like if that's the case there could be a heavy daemon involvement in the deception of the Blood Angel Captain, but that feels a little Signus Prime-ish to me. It does seem to happen to them a lot though, there's books where a Blood Angel is transformed into an image of Sanguinius by some daemonic powers. Can't say I've read it, but it's out there.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

While I am sure if the BA fleet was able to call for assistance, they would but what happens if assistance could not come because of containment protocols. Would Dante risk another company to fall to the Black Rage

I feel like containment protocols would actually be Dante and the fleet showing up to stop the space-bound crazed Company from blowing their Chapter's cover. Is this Black Rage epidemic able to cause another ship next to it to go mad? Why wouldn't Dante show up to save the marines in his stewardship?

In all honesty I'm just asking these questions to hear the story fleshed out. It's sci-fi so you can rationalize anything by saying "because: this" essentially

You could also claim some traitor legion/daemons/xenos have some new (or newly rediscovered) weapon/spell/trick that triggers it, so the barely-lucid captain realizes he needs to kill them and destroy the plot device BEFORE reinforcements show up to avoid damning them, too.
