The intrepid André Müller has actually tracked this down! He attended
a live performance of the music, and managed to speak to Alex Levy's
wife (who provided the Klingon translation and who apparently actually
does speak some Klingon).

The repeated background phrase in STID which we couldn't decipher was:
{Heghjaj Harbe'wI'pu'}, glossed as "may the infidels die". (!)
