USS Prometheus? Edit

Shouldn't the tools used on the USS Prometheus by the EMH Mark II be here as well, since The Doctor didn't know what they where or how to use them? -- Awar 13:15, 31 May 2007 (UTC).

Assassination device?! Edit

Bashir "pretended" it was a medical tool for insomnia? where's the proof of that? how do we know that it wasn't actually a sleep aid that the officer was planning to abuse -- as in to knock Sisko unconscious? -- Captain MKB 18:25, September 19, 2009 (UTC)

We don't know. We go by what he said in the episode. The proof that he said it was against chronic insomnia is in the dialogue and the script. Not sure what you're asking for. – Tom 22:46, September 19, 2009 (UTC)

Hand drier Edit

There is a dyson hand drier visible in the sickbay of the USS Enterprise when Bones helps Kirk get there. [1]

I already mentioned it along with other ordinary things used as trek tech in movies and shows at the forums, but should this be in this section? Just because it's in sickbay doesn't automatically make it a medical tool or even what it really is. It could simply look like a hand drier and have completely different function in-universe. --LauraCC (talk) 15:32, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

It's possibly worthy of a note. Just looking at the screenshot, I would also say it is possible it is indeed intended to be some sort of hand device since there is a mirror on the wall above it also. Perhaps a disinfection/decontamination unit for medical staff like hand gels are used in modern day hospitals? Regardless, I guess this is all speculation. --| TrekFan Open a channel 16:19, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

From Talk:Hand dryer Edit

Merge Edit

Given that this is presumably not intended to depict the actual Dyson device having survived unchanged for centuries and being used by Starfleet (the Dyson logo isn't present after all), we can only speculate about what this device is and what is it's function. It might be a hand dryer, it might be to sterilise the hands or heal cuts, or it might be a kerosene heater or a toilet for Edosians; we just don't know. -- Capricorn (talk) 03:48, July 25, 2015 (UTC)

I see your point. Though a toilet on the wall would be both unsanitary and embarrassing to everyone. :P --LauraCC (talk) 14:17, July 25, 2015 (UTC)
Merged and moved per pov. Tom (talk) 16:08, July 26, 2015 (UTC)

From Talk:Trill diagnostic tool Edit

This tool was not named, even the script only calls it "a device". It belongs on the unnamed medical tools page. -- Capricorn (talk) 17:50, October 8, 2015 (UTC)

Agreed per previously renamed pages. So, merged. Tom (talk) 19:49, October 8, 2015 (UTC)

Brace Edit

It has its own page (Neck brace) which I didn't notice. Is it named in the script? It's not referred to by the characters by name. It may have some fancy technobabble name for all we know. --LauraCC (talk) 16:51, October 23, 2015 (UTC)

Many of the article you're creating are not referenced in the script so I don't understand the question. It is simply a "neck brace" and should stay where it is, IMO. Tom (talk) 09:41, October 24, 2015 (UTC)
