 It has a literal meaning of "having arrived", which I might translate into
 more fluid English as "arrival".

construction must indicate that the arrival has already taken place.  Klingon 
is not like another language any of us has ever encountered.  Still, I have 
trouble believing it is so different as to use Aspect markers within nouns.
