*** Unfortunately, subverted in a later episode where Worf again breaks protocol, this time to save his otherwise-fatally-injured wife, resulting in a totally botched mission (a valuable enemy defector ends up dead. Sisko, as his superior officer, advises Worf that ''this'' failure probably means he will ''never'' be offered the position of captain (plus Worf and his wife won't be given missions together anymore). Then, "as a man who lost his wife", Sisko admits he probably would have done the exact same thing in Worf's place.

** One episode revealed that Odo made a mistake not investigating a terrorist attack thoroughly enough during the Cardassian occupation which led to innocent Bajorans being executed. Odo is in anguish when forced to relive the events begging his past self to look into things he overlooked the first time. Given Odo's reputation for competence and thoroughness in his investigations during the series he took this lesson to heart.

* ''AshesToAshes'' pulls this one when Chris turns out to have been corrupt. Gene decides that the shame of still working in CID with everyone knowing what he did will be his punishment.
* In season two of ''TheWire'', Lt. Daniels hires Sgt. Carver as part of his team again despite Carver [[spoiler:snitching about their progress to the higher-ups which led to severe meddling in the investigation]] the previous season, explaining that he knows Carver won't do it again after seeing how wrong it went the first time, and with extra attention on him.

** This trope is also how Wedge Antilles manages the formation of [[XWingSeries Wraith Squadron]]; [[ShellShockedVeteran previously-trained pilots]] who screwed up in various ways, many of them not really their fault, get one last chance. Wedge is scrupulous about the pilots he accepts, though; of the ~40 pilots that try out, only ten make it in.
