The painstick is a device to inflict pain through electricity, formerly used to domesticate animals. It is used at the Rite of Ascension to test the constitution of a klingon.

The klingon pronunciation of the word is 'oy' naQ.


Although one should correctly write "pain-stick" - i.e. stick with ck - the word "painstik" (only with k) has become tha canon spelling, also used in TKD.
