FYI here's the quote in context, along with comments from the poster (whose name I've lost):
   'uQ'a' luSop [sic?] neghwI' 'e' vIchaw'
   chaHvaD 'Iw HIq vInob
   vaj tlhutlhtaH 'e' luSIQlaHbe'
   ghIq po veb
   may' ngajHa'moH
   SuvwI'wI' ghobrupchu'be'ghach

"This is from paq'raD, Canto 15, vaq molor.  (Molor is telling Kahless that his forces are so pathetic, he's going to enebriate his own just to make sure the battle doesn't end too quickly.)"
