Uncited, no links to it seem to indicate a source either, nor do I recall any references to this. --Alan del Beccio 12:23, 8 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Okay...so, that's supposed to be an official source? I don't think so. What we need is a movie or episode that references this particular item. There are no valid sources listed, so therefore I must vote delete. --From Andoria with Love 19:37, 8 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- I think I've seen the prop from above in a TOS episode, but I can't remember which one. So keep for now. --Memory 20:30, 9 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Not unless you can cite it. Clearly an offsite link to a page selling imitation props doesn't make it canon. The term was not used. --Alan del Beccio 10:03, 13 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- I have only seen what is reputed to be the device in an animated series episode - "The Infinite Vulcan" --Fenian 18:18, 18 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- The unidentified tubular medical instrument or tweezers with colored lights is a medical device used for extracting objects lodged subcutaneously. For "Background":
- "Detailed drawings of this device (a "field reader tube") as seen in the Star Fleet Technical Manual, as well as a photograph from Stephen E. Whitfield's The Making of Star Trek, match the prop seen in "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky". It was used by Leonard McCoy to remove the Instrument of obedience from Natira."
- Just a suggestion. --GNDN 07:53, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
You know, it's odd. I have the Star Fleet Technical Manual, 25th Anniversary Edition, and based on the table of contents for the medical section of the manual, the "field reader tube" should be on page 02:11:05, however, that page appears to been completely removed, or rather, left blank... --Alan del Beccio 04:13, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
