Many people apparently just assume that whatever subtitle is on-screen at
the time something's spoken must be the translation of what's spoken. Maybe
this mostly works between a pair of SVO languages, but obviously doesn't
work between English and Klingon.

Someone had put {DagheS} as the Klingon translation of "Torchbearer" into
Memory Alpha, because the subtitle for the spoken line {Sech qengwI'
DagheS} was broken apart and the {DagheS} part appears on screen when the
word "Torchbearer" was said. I've fixed it.
