A pen was a writing instrument used on paper.
In an alternate timeline, when Melanie asked Jake Sisko why he had stopped writing, he quipped that he had lost his favorite pen and couldn't get any work done without it. He had written Anslem in pen and later wrote a collection of new stories in pen, honoring the request of his father. (DS9: "The Visitor")
