So maybe Nero is expecting someone else might get here that the ship contacted after it jumped in. Or contacted the ship after he/she saw Nero's deal with us being put together? Industrial spying to keep the lanthanum trade locked up...who knows. I'm a paranoid guy.
One thought that occurs to me (in case we end up on the other side of needing to get from Jump to surface fast): How fast is a launch or ship's boat?

Could a ship zip a high priority passenger from 100 diameters to surface at 6G on a small craft while the ship lumbers in at 2G (or 3G in our case)?
