We do have the noun {DaH} "bank, array" to describe something more than a
simple group.

I tend to use {De'qo'} for "cyberspace".  {logh} is specifically "outer"
space, according to the commentary on page 33 of The Klingon Way.

I don't much care about Klingon computers -- I generally find myself more
often wanting to talk about present-day terrestrial ones. :-)
