The Akira class vessel has 10 double occupancy cells and 5 single occupancy cells. The USS Ronin also has holo emitters fitted in its Brig as part of the EMH programme, the emitters can be used as a deterrent against large prisoners by adding extra holographic security personnel to the Brig, also if the Brig needs to be sealed the EMH can still enter and treat the injured.
