FYI we've have a few more examples since TKD:

  vImuHlu' net wuqHa'!
  My death sentence was commuted! (ENT "Affliction")

  neHmaH Da'el net tu' 
  Caught breaching the Neutral Zone. MKE

  Duj ghajchugh pagh, beylI'vo' 'oH Daje' net chaw' 
  If [ship is] unowned, you may buy it from the Bank. MKE

... and this untranslated verse from the paq'batlh (paq'yav, 10. qeylIS SuvwI' qan je):

  ta'mey Dun Data'meH naDev SoHtaH 
  bIleng net lIjbe'
  quvqa'meH vavlI' yIvang

[Could someone oblige us with the accompanying translation?  Thanks.]
