This is one prop I got entirely by accident. While watching “Nemesis” once, I noticed that Picard was using a kind of input device to enter data on a PADD.
A closer look revealed that this prop was nothing more than a pen-shaped butane torch with some golden vinyl tape added to the handle. When I realized that, I remembered that I had something similar in my workshop lying around for years. When I finally found it, it was exactly the same!
After I cleaned it up and added the necessary tape, it looked just like the screen-used stylus and I had another accurate prop replica in my collection.
A sharp eye can sometimes get you a new prop
Common objects, slightly altered for use as a prop are called “found items”.
There is normally a tip attached to this torch which has been removed here.
