In literature, poetic justice was a literary device where virtue was rewarded and viciousness was punished.

In 2161, Jonathan Archer considered Rigel X – the first and last planet Enterprise NX-01 visited prior to its decomissioning – to be poetic justice. (ENT: "These Are the Voyages...")

In 2268, when questioned by a time traveling Worf on his plan to assassinate James T. Kirk, Arne Darvin would only say that his death would have a certain poetic justice to it. (DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")

In 2376, Kathryn Janeway threatened Noah Lessing with dropping the USS Voyager's shields and allowing his "little friends" to find him. He called it murder; she called it poetic justice. (VOY: "Equinox, Part II")
