Re: What is an "ion pod?"

There's also some dialogue on the tape extract playback that Lt. Shaw plays as evidence for the court:

Uhura: Call from the pod, sir.

Kirk: Tie in.

Finney: Finney here, Captain. Ion readings in progress.

Kirk: Make it fast, Ben-- I may have to go to Red Alert.

Finney: Affirmative.

So evidently, the pod wasn't simply being readied to take readings; ion readings were actually in progress.
