Final Honor was a Romulan concept that is carried out when the possibility of capture or disgrace seems evident. To avoid such a fate, the Romulan in question commits suicide. (TOS - Vulcan's Soul novel: Epiphany)
The concept also applied to Romulan starships' self destruct mechanisms; when a Romulan commander believes that his or her ship may be in danger of capture, they will initiate the ship's Final Honor sequence by voice command. Once the commander's identity is confirmed (via retinal scan), a countdown to destruct is initiated. Commander Charvanek attempted to invoke Final Honor when her ship, the IRW Honor Blade, was under attack by Volskiar's fleet; however, the Honor Blade was so heavily damaged that she could not begin the self-destruct process. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Heart)
