Signs of things that were.

The destruction in the archives room may have occurred with the violent landing but it strikes me as more than that. It looks like a person or persons smashed things around.

The rest of the ship seemed remarkably undisturbed by the apparent violence of the landing, which makes it all the more likely that this damage was inflicted intentionally, after the fact.

Also, if it had been damaged in the landing, then she wouldn't have been so apparently surprised to find the archives in a shambles.

At least they didn't pile the books and have a bonfire! When they did all this were they being compelled to trash an "inferior culture" by forces unknown?
What I thought to be a smashed mirror as they first enter the Archives might actually be a map.

No,it's probably a mirror or something else like a optical projector: I just noticed all the tiny pieces of it scattered around. It looks like someone pounded on it with a club until maybe it stopped working...

One of the crew went nuts? Before dying of some infection? Or is there some unknown antagonistic force still on the ship?

Think of suddenly, without warning, not having any of the power they had taken for granted... Whatever did that had to have produced a reaction in the crewmembers on board. (Those who had come down from the ship to form the colonies at least had it better, with their own self-reliance to count on even if their machines didn't work.)
Those on the ship were helpless!
Probably couldn't even get to the planet below since their shuttles wouldn't work either.
Possibly all it would take to drive them insane with time, but they could have had help in that respect if the cancelling force came from the planet below them...!

Perhaps they were obeying their version of the Prime Directive and were trying to prevent the information from corrupting the native culture. Since they were unable to communicate, they would have had no way of knowing just how much the colonists had already shared.
