Quotes

[last lines]
[Iko has been sent to his death according to Nygean law]
Seven of Nine: It's unfair.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I think so too, Seven. But we have to try not to judge their system.
Seven of Nine: That's not what I meant. Iko was executed for taking a single life. As a drone, I took thousands; but I was never punished.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You lost twenty years of your life to the Borg. I'd say that's punishment enough.

Guilt and repentance
23 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Voyager comes to the aid of a stricken ship the survivors are beamed over just before it explodes. It turns out that the ship was transporting prisoners to their place of execution. While the senior personnel aren't too happy about this they accept that the prime directive means they can not interfere. One of the prisoners, Iko, manages to take Seven hostage in sick bay but he is soon recaptured and sent to the makeshift holding cells that have been constructed in one of the cargo bays. When serving the food another prisoner tells Neelix how their system of justice is highly biased; his minority race making up the majority of the prison population and even when the majority race is convicted they get lesser sentences. After Iko is badly beaten by the guards Janeway insists that only Star Fleet security will act as guards. Iko is taken back to sick bay where the Doctor treats him with Seven's nanoprobes, after this treatment his personality is radically changed and for the first time he feels guilt for the crimes he has committed. Later on when a Voyager is attacked and the prisoners escape it is Iko who saves his captor.

I felt this episode was trying to say something about the US penal system with one minority being over represented in the prisons but later on it is shown that most of the prisoners were guilty as charged and willing to manipulate the sympathetic for their own ends. Perhaps showing two conflicting arguments and lettering the viewer decide is the best way to air an issue.
