Kai Winn's Knife
This Deep Space Nine prop is the nidus of an unexpected turn of events. Winn, influenced by Dukat, actually stabs her faithful ranjen Solbor in the back with this knife, killing him. Dukat states his intentions of disposing of the body, while Winn holds the knife, then blood covered, over the Book of the Kosst Amogen. As a single drop of Solbor's blood drips onto the pages of the ancient text, the words flame into ledgibility, thus allowing Winn and Dukat to release the Pah Wraiths from the fire caves. You've got to love DS9's creative writing!!
