A religious artefact of Vulcan origin. It represents the foundation of everything the Vulcans believe in: a life of order and logic. When offering the Stone, a Vulcan representative speaks a traditional litany. This has been passed down for generations, and is now completely specific to the presentation ritual: Ishtaya kulah. Vestal ma etak J’Kah. The person presented the stone is to accept it, bow slightly, and observe a respectful silence for approximately five seconds. As of the 22nd century, the Stone of J’Kah was kept at the monastery of P’Jem. The outpost’s climate was very different from Vulcan’s, and the monks brought the stone with them to serve as a reminder of their spiritual roots. It was presented to Captain Jonathan Archer and his crew in 2151, in honour of their visit to the monastery.
