Storyline

Tom Paris and Harry Kim are wrongly convicted of a terrorist bombing. Even though Janeway captures the true criminals, Tom and Harry are fitted with strange brain implants and imprisoned on a satellite. In the prison, the inmates have no supervision, no medical care, and all have implants which increase their aggressive tendencies. New prisoners and food-rations are delivered through a one-way chute. As days pass, the friends try to hold on to reality but find themselves turning on one another and taking drastic measures to survive and attempt escape. Written by Meribor

This one is a lot better than the mediocre score would indicate
16 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Paris and Kim find themselves literally dumped into a hellish prison. There are no guards, there are no rules and the prisoners have their own "Lord of the Flies" style society. What's worse--Paris and Kim were convicted of a terrorist bombing they didn't commit.

When Janeway learns about this from the locals, she finds that they are mighty unfriendly. So, she decides to look for the real bombers. They catch them...but there is a SERIOUS problem. The folks from this $&%@ planet don't care and won't release Paris and Kim! And, considering that Paris just got stabbed, he won't last much longer!

This episode has a lot to say about prisons and rehabilitation. I also liked how awful and stupid the aliens were in this one! Overall, creative, filled with action and among the better season two episodes.
