I feel moderately confident about the lexical part, but not the grammatical part. {Qo’noS yIjolQo'}? {Qo’noSDaq yIjol’eghQo’}? {Qo’noS Dajolbe’nISlu’}? {Qo’noSoymeyna’majDaq yIjol’eghqangQo’choHmoHbejta'neSjaj}? {‘IHqu’ yIHmeyvelth}?

I'd probably use *Qol* /beam away/ instead of *jol* /beam (aboard)./

We know that *HIjol* /beam me up!/ is used by Klingons, so it seems the 
person or thing that gets beamed can be the object of *jol.* I can only 
assume the same is true of *Qol.* The destination, therefore, would be 
given by a non-object locative noun.

If *jol* and *Qol* can't flip subject and object like some words can 
(e.g., *meQ*), then we probably have to assume that the person beaming 
/must/ be the object. Therefore, *Qol'egh* or something like it is 
required. *yIjolQo'* and *yIQolQo'* /sound/ like they're right, but I'm 
not sure they are. We haven't seen these verbs used enough to be sure.

*nIqHomvam Daghajbe'chugh Qo'noSDaq yIQol'eghQo'!
nIqHomvam Daghajbe'chugh Qo'noSDaq DaQollu' 'e' yIchaw'Qo'!
*

Also consider using *Hutlh* instead of *ghajbe'.*
