Why does Ryouko's soul gem glow in the presence of active FTL technology?[edit]

My current hypothesis ties the glowing aspect into Ryouko's teleporting power, which is suspiciously akin to the Cepaholopod's Blink drive:

  • Both require charging a jump
  • Both require some pause after a jump to recharge
  • Both are (presumable) instantaneous in transfer

Points of contention needed to reconcile:

  • Ryouko's gem glows in presence of hyperspace FTL
    • This might be explained by an assumed presence of exotic matter in both kinds of engines.
