AFAIK never used in a sentence.

Compare {'op pIq} "at some point in the future".

Opposite of {pa'logh} "past, the past (as a whole)" (n).

There are two relevant verbs:
vIb  		time-travel into the future,  move through time
           toward the future (v) 

  wa'vatlh DIS vIvIb. 
  I time-travel 100 years into the future. 

  jIvIb. qaSDI' vatlh DIS poH cha'maH Hut, jImev. 
  I time-travel to the 29th century. 
  (lit. "I time-travel into the future. When Century 29
   happens, I stop.")  

vIbHa'  	time-travel into the past,  move through time
           toward the past (v) 

  jIvIbHa'pu' 'ej qeylIS vIqIHpu' 
  I time-travelled into the past and I met Kahless.

  vIvIbHa'. wejHu' jImev 
  I time-travel three days into the past. 

All words and examples from qep'a' 23 (July 2016).
