    He hated Mondays. Unless he was on the Enterprise-B then he hated Tuesdays.

    General follow-up:

    I don't think it's exactly clear if the Federation and its member worlds as of the 32nd Century still possess the wealth and infrastructure to enable this, but I imagine that in the 23rd Century, Michael grew up during an era where there's a strong probability that crimes like rape, sexual assault, and child molestation would be extremely rare, because medical science and health care delivery systems would be capable of detecting predilections towards such violence and of delivering effective health care treatments (both neurological and psychological) long before the patient actually engages in such crimes.

    Even in the early 21st century of Trek Dr. Bashir says humans of Earth could fix a lot of problems in their own time - if they gave a damn. I imagine by the time of the Tantalus V and Elba II penal colonies of TOS the only people held for extended periods of time for criminal activity would be those deemed too medically unfit for mingling with the general public, with most maladies being treatable if not curable.

    Yep. Even today, there are other prison systems that are both more humane and more effective at rehabilitation than the U.S. model.

    I knew that'd be about Scandinavia before I even clicked on it. :)
