The english was:
"My commitment to this course of action is not emotional."

BTW, this is also only in the subtitles.

More details from qepHom 2017, page 13:
MO: For "logic," use the verb {meq}. It's a verb that means, among other 
things, "think logically." I think Klingons would use a verb when 
talking about types of thinking rather than a noun.  For "emotions," you 
can use the verb {tIw}. This means "react emotionally, behave emotionally."

LLL: Can {tIw} take an object? As with meaning of "feeling emotions", 
being one's own, or someone else emotions?

MO: No. I don't think it can take an object. You'd probably say 
something like: {cheghDI' bangwI' jItIw.}
