Prison ships are vessels used for transporting prisoners, ore, and other resources between penal colonies. Such vessels are often converted from a certain type of large freighter. As a precaution against uprisings, most prison ships have minimal defenses and minimal firearms on board. They often rely on an escort for protection. Prison ships are also equipped with sealed safe rooms where the personnel can evacuate in the event of an uncontrollable riot. These rooms are heavily reinforced and can only be opened from the inside.
