I think starboard bow specifically means the right front of the ship. The klingon sentence makes no mention of whether it is the right front, middle, or rear so it should just be starboard without bow added on. Disclaimer: I don't sail and was never in the Navy. Also was only a pirate in my dreams.

I was quoting the song which inspired this sentence.

I put, "There are klingons on the starboard side of our ship!".

This quote was inspired by a song that says "starboard bow", but the Klingon makes no mention of the bow, so now I've also added "starboard side" now.

I also put, "There are klingons to starboard!"

I'm going to say that the word "ship" is an important part of the translation.
