    Nice guess, I think Spock uses it in Who Mourns for Adonais? and possibly That Which Survives? I would have to check.

    However...

    Clue # 2
    This object appears, at first, near a very 20th century-looking appliance.

    Alas no to both guesses I'm afraid.

    Many of another version appear throughout the series.

    The Cage Communicator?

    1. Though seen in both The Cage and The Menagerie, it's the same scene and only used in the first pilot filming.
    2. First appeared near Pike's TV console.
    3. New and improved for the second pilot and regular series.
    4. ? Maybe Jeffery Hunter is the guest star for The Menagerie.
    5. ??
    6. A clear transparent case, or maybe the transistors, or the flip screen locking pin...

    Nice guess but alas no.

    Clue # 8
    The object's specific, (not general), location is only seen in this episode. The rest of the series, the object's counterparts are only seen elsewhere on the ship

    Clue # 9
    In the real world, perhaps it was too costly to replicate my design throughout the series.

    I have an object in mind that more than fits every clue perfectly except for clue 4. @Methuselah Flint is that clue completely accurate?

    Not the biocomputer, and yes this particular object is only held by the guest star of the week.

    Another clue later.
