I don't think so.  I did find three other unsatisfactory examples:
 
  wa' jaj 'etlh 'uchchoHlaH tlhIngan puqloD; jajvetlh
   loD nen moj 
  The son of a Klingon is a man the day he can
   first hold a blade. TKW

  In the days [sic] that follow the summer solstice in
   the Year of Kahless 846. ('U'-MTK)

  On the night of the new moon
      Kahless gathered his weapons,
      And his finest suit of armor.  (PB)
