Klingon concertina sketch

This instrument was designed by Jim Martin, his original sketches appeared in the reference book The Making of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (p. 22), which also revealed that, in typical Klingon fashion, this concertina could also be used as a weapon. The same sketch also appeared in the DS9 Season 2 DVD Special Features.

The Klingon concertina seen in "Playing God" was sold off on the Profiles in History auction. [1] [2]
