Since it's a negative, shouldn't it be ghoqImQo'? Not just ghoqIm?

The negative is included in the wej and Klingon, like English, does not have Negative concord so double negatives should be avoided unless you are using them to cancel each other out. So since the wej is already negative, no negation is placed on the verb.
