"bangwI'oy" sounds a bit cutesy, but probably not redundant.  In
ST-whatever, (thought it was V or something), ... argh, I'm not going to
try.  All I can remember is "when that Klingon female was doing..." and
such; I'll leave it to someone who knows names.

OK, bear in mind Klingon pronunciation.  "bang" rhymes with English "thong"
(the way *I* pronounce it anyway).  "-wI'" has the same vowel as English
"bit", and cuts off abruptly at the end (the famous glottal stop).
