This is news to me.  Was there any other Klingon in that movie -- J.J. Abram's "Star Trek" (ST11), right? I don't have anything in my notes.

By 2009 we already had the nouns {teblaw'} "jurisdiction" and {yer} "domain, holdings, territory" so there was no pressing need for {Daq'a'} - unless the original line was somehow different.  (The production companies have been known to change subtitles, but not the spoken Klingon dialogue, after a scene is filmed.)
