"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Mind's Eye (#4.24)" (1991)
Ambassador Kell: There are some members of the High Council who would thank you, Worf.
Lieutenant Worf: Thank me?
Ambassador Kell: For killing Duras. No doubt that, had he lived, one day he would ascend to head the Council. Many were not looking forward to that.
Lieutenant Worf: My motives were personal, not political.
Ambassador Kell: Motives? Who cares for motives? Humans, perhaps. What matters is, you acted on that day as a true Klingon.

Ambassador Kell: [on the E-band emissions] Who sent these signals? A cloaked Romulan ship?
Lt. Commander Data: No, sir. That is not possible. The signals had to be transmitted within close proximity to the VISOR.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Are you suggesting that there was a Romulan accomplice in close proximity to Mr. La Forge when he was receiving the signals?
Lt. Commander Data: Yes, sir, I am.
Governor Vagh: This Romulan accomplice - who is he?
Lt. Commander Data: I have narrowed the list of possibilities to two people - the only two people who were with Commander La Forge all three times a transmission was recorded: Captain Picard, and Ambassador Kell. One of them may be concealing an E-band transmitter. If they would agree to be searched...
Ambassador Kell: I am a Klingon! An emissary of the High Council. I will not submit to being searched by you or anyone else on this ship.
Governor Vagh: I am forced to agree, Captain. We will take the Ambassador with us, and search him ourselves.
Ambassador Kell: [slightly panicking] Captain, I believe it to be in all our best interests if I remain aboard. I formally request asylum.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I will certainly grant you asylum - when you have been absolved of this crime.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Civil Defense (#3.7)" (1994)
[Dukat has accidentally activated an old recording left by his former commanding officer]
Legate Kell: Dukat, if you are seeing this recording, it means you tried to abandon your post while the station's self-destruct sequence was engaged. That will not be permitted. You have lost control of Terok Nor, disgracing yourself and Cardassia. Your attempt to escape is no doubt a final act of cowardice. All fail-safes have been eliminated. Your personal access codes have been rescinded. The destruct sequence can no longer be halted. All you can do now is contemplate the depth of your disgrace, and try to die like a Cardassian.
