De’vID,  thanks for answering.  I was hoping for a bit more context.  Do you know how {maQmIgh} was used in the story, maybe the actual sentence or paragraph or even the name and author of the story?  I’ve been wondering for thirty years!

For those whose Klingonaase is rusty, Mortas-Te-Kaase - also spelled  *mortaste kaase* - means "The Death's Hand".

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)?

Yes, the words were used in a story which was published in the Mar. 18, 1990 edition of {veS QonoS}.
