chorDaj nuDmeH nItlhDu' lo'.  ="He uses fingers to examine his belly."

'Iw law' tu'lu'. = "There is a lot of blood."

chor jeq baS jej. = "Sharp metal protrudes from the belly."

luHDI' torgh, wa' 'ay' teq 'ach ghurqu' 'Iw 'ej 'ay' veb HotDI' qechvetlh
qIlchu' bep'a'. -- ghurqu' - I could translate this as "increases a lot" but
how would you say that in English?  Same with bep'a': bep is agony, so what
is bep'a'? What is like agony but an order of magnitude beyond? "When Torg
pulls on it he removes one piece, but the blood increases dramatically and
when he touches the next piece untold agony cancels out that idea." 

pe'vIl baS 'ay'mey jej vo'ta' romuluSngan nuH. ="The Romulan weapon
forcefully propelled sharp pieces of metal."

torgh chor luDuQqu'pu' 'ej pa' ratlh 'op. = "They had penetrated Torgh's
belly and some remained there." So probably redundant, but I think the
shooting scene may have been confusing.

nIbpoH SIQ torgh. ="Torgh experiences déjà-vu."

vagh ben rIQmoHpu'DI' loSpev yobwI', torgh jonlu'. ="Five years ago when the
quadrotriticale harvester injured him, Torg was trapped."

yotlhDaq qaStaHvIS loS rep loSlI', toDpa' vavDaj. ="He waited out four hours
in the field, before his father rescued him."

DaHjaj toDlu'chugh, nIteb toD'eghnIS. ="Today if he is to be saved, he needs
to save himself."

mIw 'oghlaHbe'chugh naDev Hegh torgh. ="If he cannot devise a way, Torg will
die here."
