mujbej qechvam. KGT p.67 yIlaD:
<As protection against these various weapons, a warrior often carried
a shield, or {yoD}, basically a large plate of metal. The verb form of
"shield" is also {yoD}, and to "shield oneself" is {yoD'egh}.
(Although the Federation Standard word "shields" refers to both the
old hand-held protective armor and the force field protecting a vessel
-- the newer meaning clearly based on the older -- in Klingon, there
is no connection between the two. The force field on a ship is called
{botjan}. To shield a ship, one must "activate the shields," or
{botjan chu'}.)>
