As DloraH remarked and from charghwI's example, I've
come to understand {SIv} to mean "to wonder" in the
sense of "to speculate".  In this way, the *QAO
sentence really _is_ a positive statement in Klingon,
though we may translate it as a question:

>pawpu' HoD 'e' vISIv.

"I speculate that the captain has arrived." 
(so either agree with me or prove me wrong), or

>"I wonder if the captain has arrived."
