Re: Klingon WOTD: nuH bey' (noun)

The literal translation is "weapon(s) display". {bey'} refers to a
ceremonial display, perhaps a ceremonial routine or drill. We don't really
know what the Klingon {nuH bey'} might entail, since we have no further
description that I know of, the term makes me think of an armed
exhibition drill such as might be carried out by a platoon of soldiers.
