Re: Wave-Energy Collectors, Chambers Coil and Photon Control

For what it's worth, the shooting script for The Wrath of Khan capitalizes the word "Chambers." Uhura says:

"They say their Chambers coil is shorting their COMM system."

So it looks like it is indeed a proper noun--an eponym.

(I note that the late make-up wizard Mr. John Chambers created Mister Spock's pointed ears for "The Cage" back in 1964. This looks to be a Trek shout out to him.)
