An insulting epithet, possibly associated with subservience. This is likely the plural form of chowIQ.

Used by Prang in Legacies #2: Best Defense:

Ambassador Sarek, let us know when your people are ready to bring ideas to the table that do not insult our intelligence or ask us to be your chowIQpu'.

Sarek's translator "declined to parse the vulgarity, demurring from her duty with a small wave that cautioned Sarek: Don't ask."
