More Information

This is spelled DenIbya' Qatlh in the English-Klingon listing of TKD, and DenIb Qatlh on the Klingon side. In KGT, it is explained that many planets have two version of their name, i.e. one with and one without the trailing -ya'.

In TKD, DenIb and DenIbya' are both glossed "Denebia." But that's an error. The planet name in English is Deneb, not Denebia. The Klingon, however, is correct: there are two versions of this name. (qepHom 2017)
