> If the intent is to flood them with water, why not use the word SoD flood

{SoD} is obviously a better choice, which was actually the first choice
that came to my mind, but I didn't use it since I didn't know whether {SoD}
could take an object.

je SoD!

These are very nice suggestions. For some reason I can't understand I
always forget the option of clipped klingon..

This is an interesting option, although I wonder.. Couldn't the {DuSmey wa'
cha' je} be understood as if we have two separate groups of torpedo tubes,
which we go on by labeling each group as "flood the group of torpedo tubes
one", and "flood the group of torpedo tubes two"?
