That's how I would interpret it: the great void, absolute vacuum, etc.

I would think that the "logical opposite" of, e.g., {tera' vatlh DIS
poH cha'maH wej HochHom} "most of the (Terran) 23rd century", would be
something like {tera' vatlh DIS poH cha'maH wej 'ay'Hom} "some small
part of the 23rd century".

*{tera' vatlh DIS poH cha'maH wej pagh'a'} ???"absolutely none of the
23rd century"???

Doesn't work for me.
