That interpretation doesn’t match the given English translation. I think {loghDaq}, and not {loghDaq Suvrupbogh SuvwI'pu'}, is the locative of the main clause. If we were to interpret it the way you suggest, I think it would need to be translated as “All warriors are in space, which warriors are willing to fight.” With {loghDaq} being the locative for the main clause, it would be “In space, all warriors are warriors who are ready to fight”, which seems to fit the given translation better.
