Instead of Litchfield, everyone’s in the Rura Penthe penal colony.
- Chapman - Former Starfleet officer who helped smuggle weapons to the Bajoran resistance
- Vause - Bajoran resistance fighter who made the mistake of stealing a shipment of Klingon weapons
- Nichols - snarky joined Trill who has had many hosts and many lovers - was exiled from the Trill homeworld for reassociation and fell into an addiction habit when her reassociated lover committed suicide
- Red - Cardassian, former Obsidian Order agent who had posed as a chef for one of her missions - now runs the largest of the Rura Penthe kitchens
- Morello - a Betazoid who misused her telepathic powers
- Pennsatucky - a religious zealot Vorta with a malfunctioning suicide implant captured during a Dominion attack - she thinks the Founders are going to come for her, but they never do
- Taystee and Poussey - charismatic and intellectual Human smugglers who were sympathetic to the Maquis, captured when some former Maquis territory fell into the hands of the Klingons during their invasion of Cardassian space
- Miss Claudette - a stoic Vulcan, one of the most well-behaved inmates of the planetoid, yet she has one of the most chilling reputations around
- Tricia - a Ferengi who couldn’t pay off all of her debts, including one to a Klingon official
Boo Blue - a jovial Andorian who works in the Rura Penthe data core
- Sophia - an Orion hairdresser who used falsified credit documents to pay for surgical and biochemical alterations to her own body
- Suzanne - a Klingon - traitor to the House of Gowron, who uses her higher-up connections to avoid being put in the worse areas of the dilithium mines
All of the guards featured on the show are Klingons, except for Healey, who is a Federation liaison to the Klingon Empire and is a respected advocate for Federation prisoners, especially if they are Human.
I was thinking the prison guards/Correctional Officers could be the Jem’Hadar, with the more reasonable ones being the Gammas and Pornstache being one of the Alphas, and Beckett one of the nicer ones that like, aren’t dependent on Ketricel White (or whatever the story behind the nicer ones was, I haven’t watched the Dominion War seasons in a while)
Also can someone please draw something for this AU because I need to see it asap this is perfect
