Orange Circuit boards on Picard's desk? Edit

Hey guys, really quick question that I can't find an answer to anywhere: what are the orange "circuit board" type things that sit on Picard's Desk during his tenure on the ENT-D in the TV Series? Picard was known to look at them from time to time, but they've never been explained (to my knowledge)and I was curious if I just haven't been looking in the right places. Does anyone happen to know what they are? Or what they're supposed to be/represent? Were they ever explained away in any non-canonical works? Thanks!--JYHASH 08:31, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
