I dunno, having read the several suggestions.  They seem a bit
beating-around-the-bush to me, or else too metaphoric.  "chay' ghoS
yInlIj"?  Where's it going?  "Go" in the sense of "develop" is a little
overly English to me (I guess I'm against Krankor here too).  I'd go the
simple route:

bIpIv'a'?

Or maybe "nuq 'oH DotlhlIj'e'?"
