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}?

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.

Thanks! {niqHomvam DaHutlhchugh Qo’noSDaq yIQol’eghQo’!} sounds good to me. (I’m writing a description for the App Store for the iOS boQwI’ port, and wanted to put something cute in Klingon in the blurb.)
