In DS9 4×18, a Klingon lawyer gave one of the most succinct descriptions of legal advocacy I’ve ever heard: “The truth must be won.” Alas, we never heard it in the original Klingon. If someone could translate, I’d greatly appreciate it – I’m considering getting a tattoo. 🙂
My suggestion would be:
vIt QapnISlu’ The truth needs to be won (literally Someone/something needs to win the truth)
I’m basing this usage of Qap on noH QapmeH In order to win a war, from the saying noH QapmeH wo’ Qaw’lu’chugh yay chavbe’lu’, ‘ej wo’ choqmeH may’ DoHlu’chugh lujbe’lu’ – Destroying an empire to win a war is no victory, and ending a battle to save an empire is no defeat.
