[tlhIngan Hol] What exactly does the {'ej} connect ?

That's right. It's both. In this case, {vIghro'} is the so-called head of
the noun phrase, as well as the head of the relative clause. It's the main
element of the construction, and the one that (in other languages, like
German, Greek, French) projects its features onto the rest of the phrase or
clause, usually things like tense, aspect, number. Also, a {vIghro'
Danobbogh} is a kind of {vIghro'}, not a kind of {Danobbogh}, and a
{vIghro' 'IH} is a type of {vIghro'}, not a kind of {'IH}.
This isn't relevant for Klingon, though. But it's useful to know this
terminology for further discussions.
