The Medical Transport carrier ISS Thundeflare has floated adrift in space for nearly one-thousand years. It's crew and passengers long ago abandoning the vessel in escape pods following an attack. The wreck lists inexorably towards towards a star; which is both the salvation and the doom of it's sole occupier Scarlett Kriegel. The proximity to the star has lit up the ships solar panels and begun bringing it's ancient systems back online from deep sleep. But with no escape pods left, and 1000 years of change and stellar-drift between any known reference point her awakening from induced stasis could be a short one.

Guess what you're hinting at is some kind of a travel from one galaxy to another. Where the distance between the galaxies is much bigger than distances within the galaxies themselves between their stars.
I'm not sure you can travel within a galaxy without receiving some kind of light, that would fall on the solar panels. Perhaps if it needs a certain power, then you need to be close to a star, but otherwise there's always some light.
Yes, so in my head; the ship was attacked and abandoned, it's systems would try to keep running as best they could- at least the cryopods. So what little energy was collected would by design be directed to the most critical systems, it would take much more energy to bring other non essential systems back online, like life support or reanimation processes.
