cha pat Sorgh 'e' nID torgh. ="Torg tries to sabotage the torpedo system."

 'ach tlhoy HoS mIqta' vaj peng buSchoH. ="But the machinery is too strong,
so he focuses on a torpedo." Hmm, do you think rotlh might be better than
HoS?

 taj lo'taHvIS Hut'Inmey vIl teq. "Using a knife he removes screws." You
have no idea how many times I have done this. Not to a Romulan torpedo, mind
you, but muDDujDaq QapHa'choHDI' vay' lo' law' lojmIt vIpoSmoH.

lo' law' lojmIt bIngDaq leQ Sam. ="Under an access panel he finds a switch."
toH, chaq qaq lojmIt qoDDaq?

leQ vIHmoHDI' poSchoH peng naQ. "When he moves the switch [i.e. causes the
switch to move], the entire torpedo opens."

'oHDaq 'ul SIrghmey, bobcho'mey, janmey je ghovbe'chu'bogh laghchoH.  "On
it/in it, he starts to disassemble electrical lines, modules, and devices,
none of which he recognizes."

botlhDaq 'aplo' tIn tu'lu'. "There's a large container in the centre."

'aplo' ngu'DI' torgh, pay' 'oHvo' Sup ghopDu'Daj. "When Torg identifies the
container his hands suddenly jump away from it."

peng jorneb 'oH, vaj rugh ngaS. "It's the torpedo warhead, so it contains
antimatter."

Hotchuqchugh Hap rugh je, Sangchuq 'ej HoS law' lIng.  "If matter and
antimatter come into contact, they obliterate one another and produce a lot
of energy." Don't know why I felt obliged to add the exposition for anyone
who hasn't heard of antimatter.

tengchaH SorghlaHbej torgh. "Torg can definitely sabotage the space
station."
