The example that I think is most compelling comes from Skybox SP1 *Qo'noS
wo'* *Empire of Kronos*:

*...juHqo' Qo'noSvo' loghDaq lengtaHvIS tlhInganpu'...*
*...During the...[travel] of the Klingon people from their homeworld of
Kronos into space...*
This apparent apposition puts the Type 5 noun suffix on only the final
noun. It's not a simple noun-noun construction; if it were, I would have
expected it to be in the other order.
