That is a really stupid motivation, but the point of the Pakleds is that they were very stupid people and their motivation was supposed to be lacking, but it still makes more sense than the motivation the Nyrians have in this episode.

They initiate a complicated plan in order to seize Voyager. Why? In order to use it to protect the ships the seize. So they seize ships in order to protect the ships they seized in order to protect the ships they seized in order to protect the ships they seized in order to protect the ships they seized in order to protect the ships they seized in order to protect the ships they seized in order to protect the ships they seized because... they were bored?

And then you have to factor in that they built costly biospheres to keep the crews of the ships in, and they developed powerful technology in order to take control of the ships. Couldn't they have just built their own frakking ships? Voyager doesn't appear to be as advanced as their technology anyway, so they could have used less resources to build a more powerful ship and they wouldn't have to deal with thousands of prisoners.

There is absolutely no reason for the events of this episode to have happened.

There's a little bit of enjoyment to be had in the first five minutes before the Nyrians turn evil for reasons which are never explained, and the Tom/B'Elanna scenes aren't too bad (and prevent me from docking marks for being a TNG episode), but the rest of it is stupid.
