ngIq raQ - 200 QaS,  mon - 200 QaS loS raQmey je Outposts cost 200 each; capitals, 200 each plus 4 outposts. (MKE)

TREK TRIVIA:
  According to Kirk, the taking of hostages and the organization of "vast slave labor camps" are routine features of a Klingon occupation. (TOS "Errand of Mercy")

  "I have heard of their atrocities, their death camps." (i.e. the Federation; Mara, TOS "Day of the Dove")

  "This isn't a Romulan labor camp." (Galen/Picard to Tallera/T'Paal, TNG "Gambit Pt. II")
