Klingon word: vu'wI'
Part of speech: noun
Definition: manager
Source: TKD
_______________________________________________

Nomen agentis of the verb {vu'} "manage".

I believe this was used only once, in the "Star Trek Communicator" special Klingon issue  #104 (Aug-Sep 1995):

  Qu' vu'wI' yaH 
  Mission Ops (STC)

Lit. the "mission manager's work station".  IIRC this was Worf's station on the Enterprise-D bridge.  When I was in the US Navy in the late 1970's we would have probably called this person the operations officer (although my destroyer didn't have one).
