It's simply glossed in KGT as "*brak'lul* (redundancy in body parts)".
This is
an anatomical term describing a characteristic feature Klingon physiology and
was heard in the TNG episode "Ethics".  In the Klingon Databanks at
Star Trek: Continuum site (, it is defined:

  Klingonese term for the concept of complete redundancy in the race's
  anatomical organs and systems.

{bIraqlul} has never been used by Okrand in a sentence, nor do I really expect
to see it.  This was one of several "Paramount Hol" words heard in the
that Okrand transcribed in standard tlhIngan Hol for inclusion in the KGT
glossary for us to use.

: What's "SP3"?

Skybox card no. SP3, the relevant part of which reads:

  HoS law'qu' luch law'qu' je lo' Duj nuH pat Hub pat je
  A huge amount of the ship's power and technology is devoted to its
   weapons grid and defensive systems.
