Quchqu'choH torgh. = "Torg becomes elated."
DaH yaj. = "Now he understands"
mang potlhbe' ghaHmo' HIvneS lunobta'. = "They gave him a suicide mission
because he is an unimportant soldier."
QaplaHbe'pu'mo', lujbejbe'pu'. = "Because he could not have succeeded, he
hasn't truly failed."

jatlh torgh, "pIj Qu'meyrajvaD mang potlhbe' bopoQ'a'? = Torg says, "Do you
often need an unimportant soldier for your missions?"

 jISap. = "I volunteer."

jIHeghchugh batlh jIHeghmo' jIHem." = "If I die, I will be proud because I
died honourably."

jotHa'taHmo' maQ latlh chel. = "As maQ appears uneasy, he adds something
else."

 jatlh, "qoj maQ, potlhbe'wI' bopoQbe'taHvIS tlhIHvaD jIvutlaH. naDev veQ
'oH Sojraj'e' 'ej vutwI' po' jIH." = He says, "Or maQ, while you aren't
needing a pawn, I can cook for you guys. Your food here is garbage, and I'm
a skilled cook."

tam maQ. = "maQ is quiet."

Quchbe'taH. = "He is still unhappy."

chaq Sojvam 'eyHa' vut ghaH. = "Maybe HE prepared this unappetising food."

qech choHmeH jatlh torgh, "chay' tutoD?" = "In order to change the idea,
Torg said, "How did you rescue me?""

loQ Ho'Du' 'ang maQ. = "maQ showed some teeth."

QuchHa'bej. = "He was definitely unhappy."

chaq Qay'rup. = "Perhaps he was ready to blow his top."

nom jatlh torgh, "DopDaq qul yIchenmoH QobDI' ghu'. Satoy' neH. Saghelbe'."
= "Torg said quickly, "Set fire on the side when there is danger. I will
merely serve you. I will not ask you questions."" DopDaq qul yIchenmoH
QobDI' ghu' is of course a replacement proverb. Something a Klingon can say
to recover lost honour. Torg has finally realized that he is babbling and
uses this to ask forgiveness.
