You didn’t give an English translation for what you were trying to say, so I can’t be sure.

I think your sentence is valid, if you meant to say “The in-order-to-roam-on-the-fourth-planet-of-the-Terran-star-system something is complex.” To be clearer, there’s a thing; a something. This something has a purpose. It’s purpose is to roam on the fourth planet of the Terran star system. This something is complex.

And no, there is no “sentence as subject” construction, but a verb with {-meH} is not a sentence. It’s a dependent clause when applied to a main verb, and a descriptive clause when applied to a noun, like {vay’}.

So, if you meant something different than I’ve described above, please provide your translation so we can help figure out how to get there from here.
