Death in space is not due to hypothermia or cold - the concept of "temperature" loses meaning in a vacuum, since there's no air for your body heat to be lost into. Any loss of heat in a vacuum is done by radiation, which is very slow and could take many minutes to reach a lethal level - in fact, in sunlight, it's possible you'd actually heat up. The exception is sweat and/or grease on your skin, which would evaporate instantaneously and shock your skin with cold, but not actually pose much of a threat in the short-term.

Death in a vacuum generally involves Ebullism, where some components of your blood flash evaporate due to the low pressure, causing your body to swell and, more importantly, your circulatory system to promptly cease functioning. This causes unconsciousness in 14 seconds or less and death in about 90 seconds. Two people are known to have survived this exposure for significantly longer than 4 seconds, one for almost 60 seconds (who suffered no immediate medical issues and walked away from the incident), and one who I couldn't find any obvious information on but apparently took two years to recover from various symptoms of anoxia, including reduced mental and physical capacity.

TL;DR: you pass out in space in under 15 seconds, but can survive for 90 seconds and live to tell the tale. If you do die, it's due to your blood boiling, not the cold.

You can actually survive for several minutes in space, but you lose consciousness in about half a minute. That said, even if you were alive by the time they dragged you back in, you'd be in pretty bad shape, especially the lungs.

I get the feeling she was out there for a while. I doubt a ship would be able to slip in and grab her with the empire presence literally right next to her.
