I think that the idea is entirely unrelated to known principles of  
Klingon grammar.  I find nothing written by Marc Okrand that hints at  
the existence of resumptive pronouns, much less at how to interpret  
them if they appear.

It's an interesting bit of information with respect to how some  
natural languages express relative clauses.  Its relevance to the  
"ship in which I fled" issue is miniscule.  I dismiss it not because  
it's a bad idea, but because it is utter speculation unsupported by  
*anything* in canon.
