"If it's that important, the last place you want to put it is in an escape pod." said Townes "I've seen a dozen smugglers make that mistake. Just because a pod doesn't have life forms aboard it, don't mean it won't get shot down or intercepted. If we're wanting to bail, it'll have to be in a craft what can outmaneuver these pirates. A manned craft. Seeing as the your ship's out into the void by now, it looks like we ain't got such a craft."
