This does not imply that a prison that is also a mine would be more likely to be in enemy territory. Arguably the opposite is true. The minimal cost thing is true regardless of location. And where are we told that the prison planet referred to in STXI is also a mine?

Like the script says, because they were close to the KNZ.

You get hurt, hurt 'em back. You get killed, walk it off.
