My estimate on the length of the Klingon year <DIS> cames from information
provided by the Klingon Bird of Prey poster. Here's the relevent info:
jabbI'ID pup: Qapchu'meH 'aqroS chuq: cha' vI' chorgh loghqammey
High Resolution - Maximum Effective Range - 3.5 Light Years
jabbI'ID pupHa': Qapchu'meH chuq: chorgh vI' chorgh loghqammey
Medium to Low Resolution - Efeective Range - 11 Light Years
Doing the math, we see that 1 loghqam = 1.25 light-years
Thus, my natural assumtion that a <loghqam> represents the distace
traveled by light in one <DIS>.
