Technologically sophisticated civilization in the Delta Quadrant. The Akritiri had an oppressive goverment
and a system oj justice described by Starfleet observers as cruel and draconian. In 2373, Starfleet officers Harry Kim and Tom Paris were accused
by Akritiri authorities of carrying out a terrorist bombing and imprisoned on the Akritirian prison satellite. Akritiri ambassador Liria
refused to release Kim and Paris even after Captain Janeway had captured the actual persons behind the bombing.
