"Proceed to Kronos!"  Other ways of ordering a change in course:

   He chu' yIghoS!
   He chu' ghoS!  (clipped)
   Follow a new course! TKD

   He chu' ghoS. DIvI' neHmaH!
   New course. Federation neutral zone. ST3

   nImbuS wej maghoS, He yInab!
   Plot course for Nimbus III.
   ("We're going to Nimbus III. Plot a course!") ST5

I would have expected {nImbuS wej wIghoS} here, on the model of {yuQ 
wIghoStaH} "We are proceeding toward the planet" in TKD (p.28).

   HIvHe yIchoHmoH!
   Alter the attack course! ST5

   He pagh-pagh-vagh-jav-pagh-jav yInab!
   Plot course (ST5 notes)

   He pagh-pagh-pagh-DoD-cha' yInab!
   Plot course zero-zero-zero, mark two. ST5
