Yes, that's the one I was referring to. I type it so often, sometimes I 
get tired of doing so.

I wonder if this isn't using *jonlu'meH wo'maj pop* as a noun phrase. 
Instead of /In order to capture, our empire's reward is the biggest,/ 
it's /our empire reward for capturing./ Actually, I'd prefer to see it 
as *wo'maj jonmeH pop,* but Okrand's purpose clauses are all pretty 
weird for /Star Trek V./
