AFAIK the noun has never been used in a sentence.  Note the homophonous verb {ngong} "experiment":

ngongmeH wa' DujDaq nuHmey nISbe'bogh So'wI' jomlu'pu' 
[A cloaking device which didn't disrupt weaponry was installed in
  one experimental ship. (untranslated on card)] S33

N.B. {ngongmeH Duj}  "experimental ship, prototype" (?)
