Saltah'na clock

A Saltah'na clock

A clock is a piece of equipment used to track the passage of time.

Clocks were used onboard starships in the form of chronometers. (TOS episode: "The Naked Time", et al.)

When the USS Archon visited Beta III, the computer Landru scanned the computer systems of the Archon, and incorporated much of what it found on Human culture into its program. As a result, clocks with Arabic numerals soon began appearing in the Betan community, with the clocks sped up to account for the 22 hour rotational period of Beta III. (TOS novel: Ex Machina)

In 2369, Benjamin Sisko, while under the influence of an ancient Saltah'na device, built a complex bronze clock of Saltah'na design. (DS9 episode: "Dramatis Personae"; DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)

In 2376, a clock killed the Bajoran Woros Keyth when it hit him after the artificial gravity shifted in his office on Deep Space 9 during a Jem'Hadar attack. The impact caused injuries leading to fatal brain damage. (DS9 novel: Avatar, Book One)
