The Klingon verb {ghe'} is the one most likely to be involved here.  It
means "be transformed, transmuted, metamorphosed, totally altered." In
context, if someone said {maS Daghe'moH'a'?} (literally "Are you
transforming a moon?"), this would be understood to mean "Are you
terraforming a moon?"  If context isn't clear, then there'd have to be
more verbiage: {tera' chu' DachenmoHmeH, maS Daghe'moH'a'?} "In order to
create a new Earth, are you transforming a moon?") or {maSDaq yInmeH
Humanpu', 'oH Daghe'moH'a'?} "In order that Humans live [be alive] on
the moon, are you transforming it?" or {yInvaD maS Daghe'moH'a'?} "Are
you transforming a moon to benefit life?" (clunky translation).
