If your faction will not kill you see about just being arrested.
If sitting arrested for a prolonged time you will have an option to retire the character (as you couldn't play just being held).
I think this time in arrest counts as time ow waiting. After you make a new character you old character will become an imprissoned NPC. You can even takl to your faction later about having your NPC previous self made over to you to follow you around.
I looked this up a while back so go ad read up about arrest to see the exact details.
Hope it helps

Thats strange comming from somone staunchly loyal who does what he's told but yes he's right in an evil way. Find a faction you don't like. After joining you have two options.
1: get assigned to a freighter or fighter and fly it into a sun killing yourself and the ship.
2: get assigned to a capital ship. Crashing it into a sun will not kill you and will not kill the ship it will damage the ship, kill NPCs and render all people not in the cockpit out cold. You probably should hyper, abort, hyper abort, hyper abort until you come out in a planet, then you die.
Note that being in the cockipit of a cap and crashing it will actually kill you but not if you are not in the cockpit.
