I'm pretty new, but I have some input anyway (for what it's worth):

I would have said <SeH'eghlaHbe'>, or "it cannot control itself". But, that
isn't a very good translation because the ship couldn't control itself in
the first place. <DISeHlaHbe'> seems too weak to me. Actually <SeHlaHbe'>
might work, if I clipped it right.

I think that <QobchoH> would be sufficient for "becomes critical" but it is
loose. <woj choHwI'>, or "reactor" would be my choice for "warp core",
although "warp drive" is fine.

I would have used <nom tIpaw'> or <nom tIqIp> instead of "ramming speed"
but it isn't the same. It eliminates the need for "set course for their
ship". I think that <Dujchaj yIghoS> works perfectly, it is one of the only
things in the dialogue that is an exact translation and the clipped klingon
