Prisons (brigs or holding cells on starships) are a form of punishment used by all major factions in Star Trek Online. Prisons are intended for long-term incarceration where as brigs, or holding cells, are used for short term confinement on board starships and starbases.
Players can hold Prisoners in their ship's brig (to a maximum of 20) for duty officer assignments. They are usually picked up from military, espionage or marauding assignments. Klingon or Klingon-aligned players receive Federation prisoners while Federation and Federation-aligned players receive Klingon prisoners. Players of both factions can also obtain a few prisoners from other factions, such as the Dominion.
