voragh, of course, has the final word, but according to my 
observations, in Conversational Klingon and the sixth movie 
{chegh} was used intransitively both times:

CK: ghorgh pa'wIjDaq jIchegh? "When can I return to my 

ST6: DaH machegh. "We're returning now."

I would not assume that it can also be used transitively. I 
would instead use {cheghmoH} for transitive meaning.
