Stone of J'Kah

The Stone of J'Kah

The Stone of J'Kah was a religious artifact of Vulcan origin with an IDIC symbol on it.

The Stone of J'Kah was kept on a red pillow in a small box and was presented to Captain Jonathan Archer and his crew in June of 2151 in honor of their visit to the monastery of P'Jem. It represented the foundation of everything the Vulcans believed in: a life of order and logic. When offering the Stone of J'Kah, the Vulcan would speak a traditional litany that had been passed down for generations: "Ishtaya kulah. Vestal ma etak J'Kah." The person presented the stone was to accept it, bow slightly, and observe a respectful silence for approximately five seconds. The Andorian Thy'lek Shran used the stone to smash the visiting Enterprise NX-01 crewmembers' communicators. (ENT: "The Andorian Incident")

In the first draft script of "The Andorian Incident" (which had the working title "Incident at P'Jem"), the Stone of J'Kah was described as "a stone from the temple's founding structure."
The prop stone was made of resin and painted grey. It was later sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [1] [2]
