I think you answered you own question well, but hijacking on the ground seems much less resource-intensive; I wait until folks have just about 95% loaded the ship, and take the ship. I just need to secure the ship long enough to take off and deal with anyone aboard. Heavily armed/armored merc section (14-26 shooters) with some element of surprise and good mobility would do it. A stout squad (9-13) with a lot going for it could swing it if they were really good and really lucky. Some of the shooters may be cross-trained, but you'd need a ship crew, of course. as well. It would take military hardware and training, plus good inside information; milllions can buy that for you.

Jumping them once they have lifted would take another ship or few, and would be a lot more involved, especially since they will have the gazelle with them.
