The je (when used this way) follows the verb.

QaQ je 'oH   is acceptable.
And, because pronouns are optional, you can write:  QaQ je.
Or in an attempt to use 'e' as a subject, you can rephase as:
QaQ je ghu'vetlh.

You asked /nuq'e' wIjatlh?/.  I responded with a rhetorical question
repeating you:  "What ideas?  When you get together with your friends..."

And your friends don't mind?

"my woman and 'jaH' are studying..."

It's not "stars of the war", it's "war of the stars".
It's not "star wars" of "episode one", it's "episode one" of "star wars".

I'm not a huge SW fan, so I don't know which would be more appropiate, /veS/
or /noH/.  (/veS/ - war in the general sense.  /noH/ - refering to a
specific war.)

Hov noH 'ay' wa'
