The G-Force depends on how fast the rocket accelerates, not its velocity. So if they take it slow and steady, it should be fine.

Hoping with 4 hours getting to the moon that the first vessels will not be manned???
Just a quick calculation here : If the average distance from the Earth to the moon is around 384,403 km (semi-major axis)
Then that means that the speed for travelling would be roughly 96,000 km per hour.... Thats a hell of a lot of G force?

Not 100% correct you could be going at a constant speed but change direction and you will feel a g force, ever had the pleasure of being in a really fast car going into a tight bend.
