Translates from Klingonese to: "Our Torchbearer honors us… first to die in our crusade for self-preservation."
In 2256, Rejac was given the role of Torchbearer and sent to activate the Beacon of Kahless. When he reached the beacon, he found Michael Burnham there and attacked her. The thrusters on Burnham's environmental suit, however, fired moments later. As a result, Rejac was accidentally impaled on his own bat'leth.
After T'Kuvma recovered Rejac's body, a funeral was held in his honor. T'Kuvma, during the funeral, used Rejac's death at Burnham's hands in order to fuel the Klingons' hate of the Federation, in his plot to trigger a war. T'Kuvma hoped that Rejac would be welcomed into the Black Fleet. Rejac's body was laid to rest on the hull of his ship. (DIS: "The Vulcan Hello")
