In the 23rd century, violating General Order 7 is the only crime punishable by death in the Federation. Stated so in The Menagerie.
Which was, in the 60's probably meant to show how far we had come by banning execution for most crimes.

Unfortunately, in this day and age looks rather it looks bizarre that there would be the death penalty for ANY crime in the 23rd century...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
