My guess is that *De' potlh* means /important information,/ which is a 
very general thing, while *Duj De' potlh* would be /very important 
information about the ship, /i.e., /ship specifications./ Perhaps when 
I'm looking to order a computer I might look up the *De'wI' De' 
potlh*/computer specifications./

Dunno. These days we'd probably say *tlhIngan qorDu' qangtlhIn,* but 
that last word didn't exist when the card was published.
