Flash unit

A flash unit was a type of photographic tool. It was used in conjunction with a camera.

In 2152, Ensign Hoshi Sato used a flash unit in some alien runes on an unnamed planet visited by Enterprise NX-01. She held the tool above her head and pointed it at some primitive alien artwork which Commander Charles Tucker III, who was accompanying Sato, meanwhile took a photo of, using a camera that additionally had its own flash.

In a hallucinatory scenario imagined by Ensign Sato, she recommended to Captain Archer that someone other than herself could return to the planet with Commander Tucker and hold the second flash unit. (ENT: "Vanishing Point")

In the final draft script of "Vanishing Point", the flash unit was initially described as "small, cube-like." It was also referred to as "a flash-cube" in the script and was scripted to fire at the exact same moment as the camera.
