While you speak with certainty, the fact remains that we have no definition for 
{chem}. It has appeared as part of three compound nouns and it appeared as a 
separate word (or a typo intended to be a compound noun) in a word pair for 
which there was a definition. Meanwhile, Okrand never gave us a definition for 
the word by itself. If it never appears in Klingon except in this one word 
pair, {peQ chem}, or in one of these compounds, {Surchem, pIvchem, HoSchem}, 
then it is not okay to use it as if it were a separate word not requiring the 
other word in the pair, or the other compound elements in the compound nouns.

And I'm really mystified as to how you got it to mean "grid cells".
