1.) I don't recall seeing clipboards anywhere (except maybe the hospital scenes in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home), but even if they did appear -- 2.) is this article really necessary? And why was it linked from Playmates Toys anyway? --From Andoria with Love 08:23, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

There were several clipboards in "The Cage", for example in the first scenes on the bridge, in the discussion between Pike and the doctor... I think we should merge this article with PADD, as a subsection maybe. I don't know why it was linked from Playmate Toys, perhaps an action figure has a clipboard as a mini model with it. – Tom 11:05, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
It says that the Sisko model had an electronic clipboard with it. -- TrekFan 00:03, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
These have nothing in common with the PADD, other than being flat and containing some sort of data...which might also describe a book as much as it does a PADD, and anyway has much more in common with the "electronic clipboard" from TOS, which I personally think is equally less PADD than a clipboard. I added the references from "The Cage" and "WNMHGB", but it still could use references from "First Contact", "Past Tense, Part I" [1] and "Our Man Bashir" where they also appeared. (Note: no clipboards were used in TVH.) --Alan 05:53, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
