  tojbogh pa' tuHmey 
  Holodeck Adventures (STC 104)

AFAIK we don't have a word for hologram, but *{HaStaHey} has been used occasionally on the List.  Since 2008 we've had {nIyma'} "phantom, apparition" which I rather like:

(MO to Lieven, 11/23?/2008):  {nIyma'} is the Klingon word for phantom or apparition--something that seems to appear, but isn't really there. It's not the same as ghost, which is the spirit of a dead person (and may or may not look like that person, or may not be visible at all), and it's not the same as spirit (or {qa'}), which is sort of a life force within a person (that escapes when a person dies and may exist somewhere somehow).
