<html><body><div style="color:#000; background-color:#fff; font-family:garamond, new york, times, serif;font-size:12pt">Perhaps you could change the clause order around so <span style="font-weight: bold;">-jaj</span> comes last, giving the whole sentence the weight of a proclamation.<br><br>I also thought that a number of verbs could be used instead of <span style="font-weight: bold;">chav</span> <span style="font-style: italic;">achieved, accomplished</span>. My favourite is <span style="font-weight: bold;">baj</span><span> <span style="font-style: italic;">earned</span><span>:-</span></span><br>{<span style="font-weight: bold;">vabDot pumchugh Hovmey, ruv bajlu'jaj</span>}<br><br>You could use <span style="font-weight: bold;">qotlh</span><span> deserve as well:-</span><br>{<span style="font-weight: bold;">vabDot pumchugh Hovmey, ruv qotlhlu'jaj</span>}<br><br>although <span style="font-weight: bold;">DoQ</span><span> <span style="font-style:
 italic;">claim</span> could</span><span> also do:-<br></span>{<span style="font-weight: bold;">vabDot pumchugh Hovmey, ruv DoQlu'jaj</span>}<br><br>Next to those, your original term <span style="font-weight: bold;">chav</span><span> <span style="font-style: italic;">achieve, accomplish</span> does stand:-<br></span>{<span style="font-weight: bold;">vabDot pumchugh Hovmey, ruv chavlu'jaj</span>}<br><br>All are in keeping with the Klingon ethos - justice can be earned, deserved, claimed and/or achieved. I think that either of those four verbs could be used interchangeably, to suit your mood.<br><div><blockquote style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; margin-top: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"><div style="font-family: garamond, new york, times, serif; font-size: 12pt;"><div style="font-family: times new roman, new york, times, serif; font-size: 12pt;"> </div> </div> </blockquote></div>  </div></body></html>
