Source: HQ (11:3 p13)

(HQ 11.3:13 [Sep 2002]):  On his drive up to attend {qep'a' HutDIch}, it is believed that Marc Okrand was in communication with Maltz (the precise mechanics responsible for this are unknown and unimportant to the present concern). Traffic along the interstate was particularly heavy, a topic which at some point entered into the conversation. Dr. Okrand reports that Maltz volunteered the Klingon term {Hutvagh}, a noun, meaning "too many people or things in a place all at once". Maltz further indicated that the term was used as word play, a substitution for the more common {Qu'vatlh} which might otherwise be heard in such situations.

PUN:  {Hut vagh} "nine five":  I-95 is the interstate highway between Washington D.C. and Philadelphia.
