James T. Kirk, a recipient of senceiver technology.

A senceiver was an experimental technology being tested by Starfleet Command in the 2260s and 2270s decades.

History and specificsEdit

The senceiver was implanted inside an individual's brain, and acted as a communications medium, allowing text and visual messages to be transmitted into the person's consciousness. The use of the senceiver was somewhat controversial, with some worried that the technology could be put to use for mind control.

When James T. Kirk was promoted to his first command, he was implanted with a senceiver. The requirement for command-level officers to have this implant was strictly secret at that time.

In the year 2273, Admiral Kirk was able to receive the visual recording made of a battle between three Klingon K't'inga-class battle cruisers and the V'Ger entity. (TOS novelization: The Motion Picture)

By the 2280s, only flag officers serving planetside were required to have senceivers, and used primarily as locators rather than communication devices. Still, Doctor Leonard McCoy hesitated to use this device when trying to track down Admiral Kirk, considering it an invasion of privacy. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)
