KGT 153:  In time, the Hur'q came to symbolize any non-Klingon. Actually, in Klingon, a Hur'q person would be {Hur'Iqngan}, while {Hur'Iq} refers to Hur'q society or their homeland. This shorter word took on the slang meaning of "outsider, foreigner". The standard term for "foreigner, alien" is {nov}.

"You are an enemy alien. You will be under our scrutiny at all times." (Kor, TOS "Errand of Mercy")
