Hmm, I’m not sure if my previous comment was consumed by the void or not.
Quick Killo, teach Jahla about the emotion we humans call love.
Right now she’s in no mood for love.
Rereading the dialogue, I think Zara could “exact words” Jahla’s command to buy some time. Namely, Jahla didn’t indicate how fast she wanted to get to Mars. As long as she doesn’t engage her FTL, the trip would take years.
Jahla could specify a speed when she wakes up, of course, but it might buy time while she’s comatose.
She’s going at full speed…. which will still take a few days, but they’re stuck in the moment and not thinking about how long the trip will take.
