An ODN service access terminal
Optical data net service access was a function provided by a number of devices utilized by the Federation Starfleet during the mid- 24th century.
Allowing users to gain access to
library computer information and subspace communications on desktop terminals and PADDs, these devices tapped directly into the optical data network. ( : " DS9 "; Armageddon Game )
Star Trek: First Contact
Glimpsed only fleetingly on both Captain Benjamin Sisko's and Jean-Luc Picard's desktop monitors, "Optical data net service access" labels could also be found adhered to PADDs as seen in The Art of Star Trek .
An access panel in Voyager's Main Engineering shown on
E! Inside Star Trek: Voyager
was labeled as "302 Optical Data Net Service Access" with the description "Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale a tale of a fateful trip", a reference to the TV Series Gilligan's Island.
