Hold on, I might be able to figure this out.
Is it the murderer’s knife from Wolf In The Fold?
No, it is the ball that the kids in And the Children Shall Lead are playing with when they view what their families were like when their parents were alive.
Correct Sir! You win this tough one!
Clue # 1
I'm only shown in one episode, but one of my cousins' version is referenced in relation to something else, in another episode.
Yes, the ball from ATCSL, however Kevin Riley references the bowling alley in TNT. Not the ball itself, but the room in relation to dancing.
Clue # 2
Spock would consider my function illogical.
Amusement?! A waste of time and energy.
I am shown planetside, but my cousin's indirect reference is shipboard.
ATCSL and TNT
Clue # 4
I've just picked my brains and realised this object is referenced a second time (!), only on this occasion it more closely fits in the style of its actual appearance.
Here I remembered Uhura's reference when she reads out about the dog and the ball in The Changeling. Of course, the ball here is more associated with ATCSL than a bowling ball.
Clue # 5
My function is to be a source of amusement.
Need say no more on this one.
Clue # 6
My actual appearance is planetside, albeit I have several spectators in the form I take in my episode.
Both spectators watching planetside I. E. The parents, and on the E's viewscreen.
Clue # 7
I'm not a futuristic item.
Clue # 8
My actual only on screen appearance is with several characters who end up dying. Or should I say, first up dying.
Indeed, the parents are dead as soon as we arrive.
Clue # 9
I'm a non-technological, common Earth object.
Again, no explanation.
Clue # 10
My only appearance is on a viewscreen.
Clue # 11
My appearance is in one of the least popular episodes.
Quick, Mr. Sulu, Fire a full spread of photon torpedoes!
Well I saw that screen clip and ball and didn't think it fit the clues! Probably the Spock clue threw me off! Here is something related, a photoshop I made maybe 10-15 years ago for a website long offline now called YCDTOST (You Cant Do That On Star Trek)
Oops, sorry, I guess I need to post one.
Clue 1: It's obvious by looking at this object what it's purpose is.
Oh, I hope it’s not the ball from ATCSL.
Is it the blue tooth ear thingys that Uhura, Spock, et.al. use for hearing communications/data information?
Chekov : I vas makeeng a leetle joke, sir.
Spock : Extremely little, ensign.
Type II Phaser?
Would you believe....
Maybe it’s McCoy’s hypo thingy....
Vulcan lyre.....to play music
