Hmm... "burning + fast/quickly"??  Could this refer to the line from the Anthem:

  Our lives burn short and bright

which Okrand translated as:

  nI'be' yInmaj 'ach wovqu'.

For those with the {paq'batlh}, what's the context?

Otherwise known in standard Klingon simply as {tlhIngan wo' Degh} "the symbol of the Klingon Empire:

  tlhIngan wo' Degh 'oH Deghvam'e' 
  This marking represents the Klingon Empire. SP1

SP1:  This marking represents the Klingon Empire and has been emblazoned upon the hulls of countless Klingon Starships. During the aggressive expansion of the Klingon people from their homeworld of Kronos into space, this symbol grew to become as feared throughout the galaxy as the menacing profiles of their battlecruisers.
