BTW, the explanation of this word makes me question whether Kermit the Frog would be described as {qo'rob}. Or perhaps, if the word means one state under the control of another, Klingons would make the same metaphorical connection, only in reverse.

He wouldn't be. A few lines further down is:

SIrgh raghghan     puppet (n)
               (literally “string doll”, the doll that is used in performances)

At the qep'a' I had a conversation about whether {naQ raghghan} would also be understood as a type of puppet.
