A prisoner of war, or POW, was a person, whether combatant or non-combatant, who was held in custody by an enemy power during or immediately after an armed conflict.
The People's Republic of Haven maintained a secret detention facility for prisoners of war as well as political prisoners on the planet Hades in the Cerberus System. The guards there did not respect the common rules of the Deneb Accords, regularly mistreating and abusing, even killing prisoners. (HH7)
After the Theisman Coup and the restoration of the Republic, the new government went to great lengths to treat its prisoners of war properly. Camp Charlie-Seven, located on an island on Haven itself, was an example of a properly run POW camp, with its day-to-day operations being left largely to the prisoners themselves. (SI2)
