(qepHom 2017):  A [TV] series can be called {lut mIr}.

(Lieven, 9/2017):  Of course, its literal translation is "story chain" or "chain of stories" (parallel to the {lupwI' mIr}, "train" from TNK) … Besides, it was not a message, Okrand was sitting next to me and said "do it this way".

   In John Ford's novel "The Final Reflection" there is the Klingon version of a video (television) series named "Battlecruiser Vengeance" featuring the adventures of Captain Koth of the Klingon battlecruiser Vengeance fighting alien races (Humans, Romulans Kinshaya and others) and trying to capture their ships.  Like Captain Kirk, Koth was always triumphant and each episode ended with him being asked by those he had captured who he was.  He answered, "I am Captain Koth.  Koth of the Vengeance.  And this ship is my prize."
