Ah... but you are assuming that the only reason to have a prison planet is to escape from it...
If Rura Penthe is added officially to the KDF side, there may be many potential missions tied to it. For example having to debrief a prisoner there because it turns out he may have information vital to another part of the mission you're on. You'd have to go there...
And then while there, the Brotherhood of Aliens decides to stage an attempted prison break. And you are caught in the middle of it. And the prisoner you were sent to interrogate? He's in good with the Brotherhood's leadership... And they don't LIKE you very much...
So yeah. an escape scenario might be there. But the player would be on the side of those trying to STOP the escape.
On the Federation side, Being sent to Rura Penthe and needing to escape might be there. But it should be done in a way where you cannot just leave whenever you feel like it. Get sent to RP and you are stuck there until you successfully escape.
