<br></div>It does appear to be an error, but I will instead interpret it as a noun-noun as in the first line. &nbsp;</div></div><div dir="ltr"><br></div><div dir="ltr">"The Klingon Empire's dignity and virtues</div><div dir="ltr">&nbsp;are strengthened by this honor.&nbsp;</div><div dir="ltr">&nbsp;When Molor's dignity and virtues ruled, they had become weak."</div><div dir="ltr"><br></div><div dir="ltr">janSIy</div> 		 	   		  </div></body>
