I put, "Your message; Is it this message?"

The course probably only accepts Is this message your message?

However, an appropriate translation would also be, This message, is it your message? You're topicalizing this message by fronting it in English, and by adding -'e' to QInvam in Klingon. Another good translation would be As for this message, is it your message?

They weren't in there, but I think that's more due to oversight than objection. I have added them in.
