Get the eight passengers in the emergency low berth and start the launch sequence. Be sure to enter a correct Jump destination in the pods computer, before the launch. When the pod is started, the computer takes over. In the destination system, the computer searches for the next planet and heads for an orbit. In orbit, the distress beacon is started. Once a reply gets in, the computer asks for remote control assuming enough fuel is left. If this is the case, a remote operator can land the pod. If not enough fuel is left, the computer asks for a rescue mission.
While the computer waits for a reply on the distress signal, only low berthes and the radio are powered. All other systems are powered down to save power plant fuel. The computer only comes alive, when the radio gets an reply. The radio sends only 1 hour out of 24. The power requirements for recieving are 1/100 of those for sending. So the overall power requirement is 0.015 MW per hour. Which stretches the life expectancy in this low power mode to more than 400 years.
