Obviously, *Qo' roj* isn't the way to say /no peace./ But we have a 
special out in that *roj* is both a noun and a verb.

*nov: roj... rojQo'*

There's a bit of a quandary! On the one hand, one normally has to use 
*-'egh* and *-moH* when making a verb of quality into a command, but 
*peHegh'eghmoH* /make yourselves die!/ is obviously not what the alien 
has in mind.

Here's my unclipped attempt:

    /Okun:/ *HItlhabmoH.*

    /Whitmore:/ *lojmIt yIpoSmoH; pa'vo' ghaH yIlel.*


    /Okun:/****DaH *HItlhabmoH! DaH!*

    /Whitmore:/ *maghoj'eghmoHlaHbej, rojHom wISutlhchugh. nItebHa'
    mayInmeH mIw wItu'laH. marojlaH'a'?*

    /Okun:/*roj?... marojQo'.*

    /Whitmore:/*nuq wIta' boneH?*

    /Okun:/*SuHegh... SuHegh...*
