/paw'/ is "collide," but I'm sure you meant /paw/ "arrive."  A time
"arriving" might be an English idiom that doesn't have an equivalent in
Klingon.  I would just say /taghDI' ram, vem.  taghDI' pem, QongchoH./  It
would even be appropriate, though less detailed, to say /pem Qong; ram

I think /tlhoS puv/ works just fine for what you're trying to say ("glide"),
since you attempted to explain it elsewhere.  Perhaps you could talk about
something like /puv 'ej ghIr./
