  • Ancient artifact containing the original writings of Surak of Vulcan on the topic of cthia, or "logic" (ENT: "Kir'shara")
    • Lost after his death, his writings only surviving in fragmentary forms or in the teachings passed to his students, known as the Analects of Surak (ENT: "Kir'shara"; ENT Novel: Tower of Babel)
    • Recovered August 2154 in the T'Karath Monastery by Captain Jonathan Archer while holding the katra of Surak (ENT: "Kir'shara")
    • Rediscovery led to general cultural reformations throughout Vulcan society, including a rejection of recent militaristic and incurious attitudes amongst the Confederacy and a revokation of the stigma against usage of Vulcan telepathic talents (ENT: "Kir'shara"; ENT Novel: The Good That Men Do, Uncertain Logic)
  • Small pyramidal device about half a meter in height, a quarter meter wide at its widest point (ENT: "Kir'shara"; ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
  • Possesses holographic projectors to present writings for public display (ENT: "Kir'shara"; ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
  • Pyramid contains 36 trapezoidal sheets of titanium on which Surak inscribed his writings (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
  • Was briefly the center of an attempt at destabilziing Vulcan society in 2165 by former-Administrator V'Las (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
    • A purposefully near-perfect forgery was created, used to replace the true Kir'shara, seeding doubt about its provenance through the idea that it may have been forged by outsiders from the beginning in order to shift the course of Vulcan society (ENT Novel: Uncertain Logic)
