"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Blood Oath (#2.19)" (1994)
Kang: [to the Albino] Look upon your executioners, killer of children!

Kang: This time, we will reach the Albino. And when we do, I will cut his heart out, and eat it, while he watches me with his dying breath!

[Dax and he Klingons are preparing to storm the Albino's compound]
Kang: It will be midday in about an hour. Can you create the diversion in the armory by then?
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: I think so.
Kang: We will be in position at the powerhouse. May Kahless guide us on this day of vengeance!

Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: [to Kang] I'm Dax, godfather of your son.
Koloth: You are no one's godfather!
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: I am Dax, godfather of your son.
Kang: So - you are the same Dax who took a blood oath with us, to seek vengeance?
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: Don't mistake a new face for a new soul, Kang.

Kang: The old Klingon ways are passing. There was a time, when I was a young man, the mere mention of the Klingon Empire made worlds tremble. Now, our warriors are opening restaurants and serving racht to the grandchildren of men I slaughtered in battle. Things are not what they used to be, not even a blood oath.

Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: The Korvat colony. First day of negotiations, I walked out on you - right in the middle of that long-winded speech of yours. You should have seen the look on your face. Nobody had ever had the kajunpak't to show their back to the great Kang before Curzon did.
Kang: I almost killed Curzon that day.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: I knew, I had to get you very, very angry, or my mission wouldn't succeed. Getting you angry with me was the only way to begin to create a bond between us.
Kang: Curzon understood Klingons.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: And he also understood what he was doing when he took a Klingon blood oath.

Kang: I cannot dishonor myself by allowing you to die in Curzon's place.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: Who's talking about dying? I have no intention of dying. You dishonor yourself already, Kang, by placing your honor above mine. No Klingon warrior would leave a comrade behind while he goes off to battle! Perhaps you're right - Klingon honor isn't what it used to be.
Kang: Are you trying to anger me again? You think the same trick would work twice?
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: I understand Klingons.
Kang: All right then - it worked. Come and fight with us. Come and be damned!

Kang: We will overwhelm them, to glorious victory!
Koloth: Or a glorious death!
Kor: It is a good day to die.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: It is a good day to die.

Kang: If we cannot reach the Albino, we can at least die an honorable death trying to reach him - a death a Klingon Dahar Master deserves.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: You know what, Kang? I think you Klingons embrace death too easily. You treat death like a lover. I think living is a lot more attractive.

Kang: Perhaps... it is a good day to live.

Kang: [after killing the Albino] Thank you for... saving the death blow for me. You have honored me one last time... godfather to my son.

[last lines]
Kang: Where is Koloth?
Kor: He is dead.
Kang: [breathes heavily] I was right, Dax. It is a good day to die...
[dies]
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: [whispers] It's never a good day to lose a friend.
[Kor intones a Klingon funeral dirge in honor of his fallen comrades]


"Star Trek: Day of the Dove (#3.7)" (1968)
Kang: We need no urging to hate Humans. But for the present, only a fool fights in a burning house.

Kang: For three years the Federation and the Klingon Empire have been at peace. A treaty we have honored to the letter.
Captain James T. Kirk: We took no action against your ship, Kang.
Kang: Were the screams of my crew imaginary? What were your orders, Kirk? To start a war? You've succeeded! To test a new weapon? We shall be happy to examine it.
Captain James T. Kirk: There was a Federation colony on this planet. It was destroyed!
Kang: By what? No bodies, no ruins. A colony of the invisible?
Captain James T. Kirk: Yes, a test of a new Klingon weapon leaving no traces. Federation ships don't specialize in sneak attacks.

Kang: Kirk, my ship is disabled. I claim yours. You are now prisoners of the Klingon Empire against which you have committed a wanton act of war!

Captain James T. Kirk: Go to the devil.
Kang: We have no devil, Kirk. But we understand the habits of yours.

Kang: When I take this ship, I'll have Kirk's head stuffed and hung on his cabin wall.

Chekov: Filthy Klingon murderers! You killed my brother, Pyotr. The Archanis IV research outpost. A hundred peaceful people massacred! Just like you did here. My brother - you killed my brother!
Kang: And you volunteer to join him. That is loyalty.

Captain James T. Kirk: YOU received a distress call? WE received a distress call!
Kang: I don't propose to spend the rest of my life on this ball of dust arguing your fantasies! The Enterprise is MINE!

Kang: I have captured your Engineering section, and now control the ship's power and life support systems. I have deprived all areas except our own. You will die of suffocation in the icy cold of space.
[power on the Bridge is cut]

Kang: What power is it that supports our battle yet starves our victory?

Kang: With your death, we win!
Captain James T. Kirk: Nobody wins. Have any more of your men died? We can't be killed! There's an alien aboard. It wants us alive.
Kang: Then, no doubt, you will reassemble after I have hacked you to bits!

[last lines]
Captain James T. Kirk: [to the alien entity] Get off my ship. You're a dead duck here, you're powerless. We know about you, and we don't want to play. Maybe... maybe there're others like you around, maybe you've caused a lot of suffering, a lot of history; but that's all over. We'll be on guard now, we'll be ready for you, so ship out! Come on, haul it!
Dr. McCoy: Yeah, out already!
Kang: Out! We need no urging to hate Humans. But for the present, only a fool fights in a burning house. Out!
