 From a linguistic or semantic point of view, "ten minutes before dawn" 
is NOT an easy thing, and it doesn't make much sense standing alone. 
This phrase contains lots of words that can be intepreted in several 
ways, and the phrase is missing an action, which makes it very 
complicated to express in Klingon.

At this point, I see Q from TNG who says "You still think like a Human".
