If only Klingon had a collective plural marker.

Knowing Klingons, they probably built in the same multiple redundancies
that make Klingon physiology so unique. Personnaly, if given the choice
between two computer systems, Federation and Klingon, I'd choose the
latter; more rugged design and less prone to "energy surges" that seem to
plague Federation ships.

Query: does Klingon have a word/phrase meaning "fishing net" or "woven
cloth/material"? Such words/phrases would go a long way towards describing
computer networks.
