Re: [Tlhingan-hol] Klingon Word of the Day: toQDuj

<div dir="ltr">Interesting that {toQDuj} doesn&#39;t appear until the 2nd edition of TKD, since the vessel featured so prominently in ST3.<div><br></div><div>In TOS, &quot;Bird of Prey&quot; only referred to Romulan vessels, which were so decorated. It was originally intended that Kruge had captured his ship from the Romulans, but this aspect was left out of the movie.</div>
<div><br></div><div>There are quite a few bird terms in Klingon, but it seems that none of the canon bird species (borghel, cha&#39;bIp, Da&#39;nal, etc.) are specifically birds of prey; many are obviously not. So is {toQ} a general term for all birds of prey or a specific species?</div>
