Gorlan prayer stick

A Gorlan prayer stick

A Gorlan prayer stick was an extremely rare artifact, but had no real value as an antique (except, perhaps, to students of archaeology such as Jean-Luc Picard).

Captain Picard was in the possession of a Gorlan prayer stick and kept it in his quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-D. He traded a bottle of very old Saurian brandy for the artifact. He later gave the prayer stick to Jason Vigo as a parting gift. (TNG: "Bloodlines")

It seems likely that the Gorlan prayer stick originates from the Gorlan, whose existence as of yet has only been confirmed for the mirror universe.
According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion, René Echevarria claimed that this connection was not intentional.(citation needededit)
According to the script, his name was pronounced as "GORE-lun". [1]
