What if we started 'porting the prison modules into our home systems? You know, let the fine taxpayers who are funding this have a chance to extend some charity?
I've thought about that. Each of the 300 fleet homeworlds would end up with an average of 60 million refugees.
That's a lot of mouths to feed, and this war did not net anyone any additional infrastructure.
Besides, Tax payers like their charity at arms' length.
Preferably someone else's arm.
