Gambling Sphere

This treasure is one of my favorite light-up props from Deep Space Nine. Coming to us from the second season episode "Rivals", wherein Martus Mazur acquires the sphere in prison and then proceeds to replicate larger versions for his new casino on the
Promenade. This little sphere has a battery powered circuit which controls the pattern of light-up LEDs covering the surface. There is also an input for an external power source to run the internal fluorescent bulb. The prop builders really packed a lot into this cute little package.
