Sikarian atmospheric sensor

An atmospheric sensor on Sikaris

The Sikarian atmospheric sensor was a device found on the planet Sikaris.

It emanated sounds and also looked like a musical instrument, but it wasn't one, as the frequencies of the chimes it emanated indicated changes in the weather conditions of Sikaris.

The Sikarian Eudana showed Harry Kim of the USS Voyager how to use the atmospheric sensor. (VOY: "Prime Factors")

The hand-held tool was previously used as part of the Exocomp in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Quality of Life" and was made from a part of a Romulan phaser rifle. It was later sold off on the Profiles in History auction. [1]
