I wasn't happy to do it, but the convention is named Conquest and if
they want the name translated, I wanted to stick as close to it as
possible.  I considered how I would name a ship Conquest.  I decided
that I would not.  However, if I did, it would have to be the variation
of the meaning, "the act of attempting to conquer."  It is extremely
difficult to put this into one word and the closest I could get was,
"the conquering," or charghlI'ghach.

Whoops, I meant...
qoSlIj cha'maH wa'DIch botIvjaj, charghlI'ghach
