More Information

This term was used in the book The Klingon Art of War to refer to the smooth-headed Klingons seen in Star Trek (The Original Series). In the Star Trek Adventures: Klingon Rulebook, those having a ridgy forehead are called HemQuch (p. 99), but that word was not vetted by Okrand.

Maltz said he never heard the word QuchHa' for those Klingons. He said that must be a very old word or a taboo word that had gone out of fashion or something like that. He said the only word he knew for those afflicted Klingons was a word used mostly by children — HabwI' (one who is smooth) — but that maybe there was another word or a technical term that he just didn't know. He said that Klingons don't like to talk about this and maybe that's why he didn't know the terminology. (qepHom 2014)
