"wa'leS Qo'noS wIpaw."

Translation:We will arrive on Kronos tomorrow.

Why "wIpaw" and not "mapaw"?


Because the Klingon verb paw can take the arrival point as its object. In English we have to say "arrive at/on", but in Klingon the "at/on" is already included in the verb when used with an object. Thus Qo'noS is the object of the verb and must be included in the prefix by using wI-.
