Default Cold Berths as Brigs

I am starting to work on designing some ships for my universe, and was thinking that the warships, Space Viking ships, and probably the Rim Scout ships will need brigs. However, if someone is in the brig, they are still using up oxygen, water, and food, along with other life support supplies. I am not sure if I want to have an unproductive member of the crew doing that, and then the idea hit me that a "cold berth" would be a great place to put such a crew member on "ice" for the duration of their confinement.

For survival, I might go with a bit higher probability than the normal 1 in 36 chance. Maybe have two 2D6 rolls, the first 12 indicating a drop of 1 in one of characteristics for a few weeks. The characteristics I am thinking of are the physical ones: strength, endurance, dexterity, and intelligence. Getting tossed in the brig might result in a drop in Social Standing too, come to think of it. Then if one double 6 shows up, roll again, and if another double 6 shows up, well then the crew member might just become a permanent casualty. The option would be simply toss them off the ship at the next port, regardless of how uninviting it may be.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
