What I've never been able to understand is why bother with a pilot / crew on one to begin with? Make it robotic / autopilot. The tender takes it to the jump point and a crewman on the tender gets it into position and it jumps.
At the other end, it has an automatic beacon that tells the tender where to pick it up when it arrives.

That saves the cost and space of thousands, likely tens of thousands of crewmen, increases safety through reduced loss of life, and gives the same boat way more space for cargo CHACHING! the money saved would be huge.
