A data rod is a small, colored tube several centimeters in length, used to store electronic information. Data rods are used to hold files for Encyclopedias. Simon Tam owned a number of data rods with both general and medical information on them. ("Serenity (pilot)")

List of Data Rod TopicsEdit


Data rods were shown close up only in the original Serenity pilot episode, in a cut scene available in the DVD set. A good view of them is shown, as is the titles of the topics that Simon's data rods cover.
