Prison Hulk

The former Imperial battle cruiser Gaesh has been paid off and converted to penal rehabilitation at an orbital site above Pixie (1903 Spinward Marches).  Modern reform and rehabilitation methods are used on a variety of Imperial offenders in a setting removed from normal pressure and routine; the Ministry of Justice reports excellent results in its programs, with a recidivism rate approaching zero.

The orbiting prison is an interesting study in economy, converting an otherwise useless starship to an important social institution.  The two upper decks have been retained for guard crew quarter and essential administration, while the three lower decks have been turned over to the inmates for quarter and recreation.
