I'd suggest: maSuvtaHvIS tlhInganpu' DIrur. "While we are fighting, we resemble Klingons."

Or perhaps maSuvDI' tlhInganpu' DIrur. "When/As soon as we fight, we resemble Klingons."

This works for the hypothetical concept of fighting like Klingons, but if you want to say that we here fighting right now do so like Klingons, you can say maSuv; tlhIngan DIrur We fight; we resemble Klingons. We fight like Klingons. This follows the general pattern of Klingon similes: state what the subject does/is, then state the thing the subject "resembles."
