TNG Birthright Part 1
WORF: A Klingon would rather die than be taken prisoner. I should kill you for spreading lies about my family. My father was killed defending Khitomer.
WORF: A Klingon would never allow himself to be captured. A warrior fights to the death. If my father were alive it would dishonour his sons and their sons for three generations. Even Alexander would bear the burden of guilt.
DS9 Till Death Us Do Part
WORF: This is intolerable! They have us caged up like animals!
EZRI: Stop it.
WORF: A Klingon would rather die than be held captive!
Then we go to Episode 8 of Discovery
L'Rell: What happens to those who Starfleet captures?
Admiral Cornwell: In war? They're imprisoned.
Admiral Cornwell: Interrogated, humanely.
Admiral Cornwell: Eventually, they're returned to their people as part of any final peace settlement.
L'Rell: So, you do not execute them.
Admiral Cornwell: The Federation has no death penalty.
L'Rell: I wish to defect.
and Episode 9 of Discovery
