(If I understand this matter correctly), I wouldn't say {Sambogh 'ej
romuluSngan HoHbogh nejwI'} for the following reasons:

1. Reading it from left to right it isn't immediately clear who is being
located and by who.

2. (After reading this thread) I'd understand it as "he/they who is/are
located by him/them, and by a probe who kills Romulans".

3. There's no already stated noun which is then being replaced by a pronoun
(if that's how we call words like "he, she, they, etc).
