Hehe that's funny

In a superficial way some people see the Klingons use of gun and run and cloaks as contrary to the Klingon honor system. We simply wanted to add cultural depth to support the behaviors.

But "honor" exist longer in human languages then "Klingon".
True you did much better at staying in character, that's why I said I should have waited.

Well, the Klingons have had a few generations to refine their honor system. Evolution demands that it actually leads to succesful warfare.

Only a fool fights in a burning house.

A Klingon will flee (or "retreat") if there is nothing to be won anymore by him staying.
A Klingon fleeing to save only his own skin, leaving his allies to die is dishonorable. But fleeing because your destruction is inevitable and will possibly hasten the demise of your allies or lead to defeat is acceptable.

A Klingon will gladly fight to the death if that's the only way to halt the advancing army. But he will also run from them if he is the only one to warn his allies from the advancing army.
Nope sorry your wrong and yall can make up what ya want doesnt matter to me, hey i love the klingons but no respectable Klingon would ever run and hide in battle it would compleatly discrace him and his family also the greatest honor for any Klingon it to die in Battle, that has been stated by every klingon and every star trek episode and moivie , But you all missed my point which is it's smart play but not very klingon , but hey every one is free to there thoughts on the matter

I think this about covers it.

I remember as a child asking my dad why that happened on a TV show. His response was always the same, "Because that's how it is in the script."
