More examples for those keeping track:

tongDuj 'urISva' maH. jav Hogh maH Qo'noSvo'...
We am thy freighter...Ursva... Six weeks out of Kronos. ST6 (sic!)

[NB: This was intentionally bad Klingon!  BTW, the name "Kronos" was first 
heard in ST6.]

Qo'noSDaq paw cha' DIvI' beq
Two Federation crewmen arrive on Kronos. PK

Qo'noS wo'
Empire of Kronos SP1 (title)

juHqo' Qo'noSvo' loghDaq lengtaHvIS tlhInganpu'
During the (aggressive) expansion of the Klingon people from their 
homeworld of Kronos into space... SP1

tera'vo' Qo'noS vIchegh
I return to Kronos from Earth. (st.klingon 7/99)

Qo'noS vIDab
I live on Kronos. (st.klingon 7/99)

"No one ever says {romuluSya'} (Romulus) or {tera'ya'} (Earth) and 
certainly not {Qo'noSya'} (Kronos), the Klingon Homeworld itself."  [KGT p.142]
