Part of speech: 	noun

Published by the KLI in HolQeD 1.3 and reprinted again in HolQeD 5.4.  
AFAIK never used in a sentence.
Does anyone know what the context was in {veS QonoS} (the newsletter of Mortas-Te-Kaase, a defunct Klingon fan club)?  

*{juS yo' qIj} "the Black Fleet is passing": a proverb for "when there is a general ominous feeling" ("They Have Aleady Been Here," a short story by Anthony Appleyard)
