How good is your Klingon? I need a translation!

I had a chance to meet Marc Okrand at a small sci-fi convention a little over a week ago (you can read about it here). For those who many not know, Okrand created the Klingon language.

Anyway... Okrand signed my "Klingon for the Galactic Traveler" book in Klingon, but I can't figure out the translation with my Klingon dictionary or Google! For anyone who can translate it and provide a source(s) for said translation, I'll give you a signed copy of Armin Shimerman's (DS9's Quark) book "The Merchant Prince."

The sentence appears to be (and this is based on my read of his handwriting): tlhingan Hol DaHaD tup 'a'?

Any takers? Send an e-mail to if you think you've got it, or post a comment (be sure to send/leave your e-mail address if you do).
