And apparently Ambassador Fox had the power to send Scotty to a penal colony, with no mention of trial or court-martial.
Yeah, that was terrible when Scotty was gone to prison for all those years.
I believe the point Marsden, is that Fox should not have been able to credibly make the claim at all. Some government flunky shouldn't, on their personal say so, send a Starfleet officer into the prison system. Or even be able to make the threat, regardless if it wasn't carried out.

I apologize for my flippant remark. I do not remember that, but I shall rewatch that episode shortly and will make a more proper remark. I simply do not remember him doing anything but trying to boss Scotty around.
