I was thinking about the kids at the academy before the clone wars, Luke's training on Dagobah, and Rey's training in Last Jedi. 106 days to go from 0D to 4D.

Luke and Rey started farther along than 0D. That's part of why neither one of them needed to spend 106 days. But that's not what I want to focus on. I'm making a theoretical padawan character, I'm thinking about those kids at the academy.

The kids are trained by Yoda until they are ready to go off an be apprenticed to a Jedi. How trained are they before they get chosen by Jedi Knights to start their apprenticeship?

So here's the character sketch I have right now for the character.

- Born 200-300 years before the clone wars.

- Sent to the Academy as a young child after a standard midi-chlorian test

- Excelled in his jedi studies under Yoda.

- When it came time to be chosen as a padawan by a Jedi Knight, no one chose him. He was assigned to the Jedi Services Corps, against his heavy protests.

- He was sent to his first assignment via passenger ship.

- Pirates attacked the passenger ship. They fought off the pirates, but lost their hyperdrives and communications, among other systems.

- They traveled to the nearest system via relativistic travel. They only experienced a month, but arrived hundreds of years later under the rule of the Empire.

How would a ship hit 'relativistic' speeds to where time dilation becomes that big?

I assumed the technology was already there. It is a matter of accelerating fast enough and handling the acceleration. Star Wars has acceleration compensators and advanced engines.

Hyperdrive malfunction can also do this - there's one or two in the EU.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bosbit_Matarcher for instance.
