Most of us call it <tlhIngan tIgh>, although an argument could be made for
<tlhIngan He>. Note that <He> has not <'>.

TKW has <reH boch qutluch lo'lu'bogh>, and I have to agree that the <-taH>
is not necessary here. You don't have to use the qutluch *continuously* to
keep it shiny; every once in a while should do just fine.

If Gowron was speaking Klingon (and he likely was not), then it was probably
<reH nuHmey tu'lu'> - Okrand almost always seems to omit the <lu-> prefix
from <lutu'lu'>. Voragh can most likely confirm this.
