&gt; &gt;     The bartender nodded and before a moment passed he had<br>
&gt; &gt;   returned with three bottles. He sat them on the bar and<br>
&gt; &gt;   pointed at each in turn.<br>
&gt; &gt;     &quot;{ngaSwI&#39; wej. HIvje&#39;mey.}&quot;<br>
&gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; As I recall the bartender wasn&#39;t a Klingon, so that may explain his grammar:  &quot;Bottle(s).  three. Glasses.&quot;  (Note that this appeared before {bal} was published in KGT although {bIQ bal} &quot;water jug&quot; was used in the KCD game itself.)]</p>

&gt; It&#39;s been a long time, and I don&#39;t have the ability to run the game<br>
&gt; any more, but wasn&#39;t that line spoken by Gowron or Pok? IIRC, the<br>
&gt; bartender gave Pok a choice of three bottles of drinks of various<br>
&gt; strengths, and {ngaSwI&#39; wej} is a request for &quot;bottle number three&quot;.<br>
&gt; But I may be wrong about that.</p>

<p dir="ltr">Gowron says the line. Based on the reaction it indeed seems to be intended as &quot;bottles, three glasses.&quot;</p>
