The agony booth was invented by Doctor Phlox and Major Malcolm Reed of the I.S.S. Enterprise NX-01 in January 2155. It created intense pain through direct stimulation of the nervous system.[1] Terran Starfleet officers in the mid- to late-23rd century often used hand-held agonizers, based on the agony booth technology, to inflict punishment on their subordinates. The more complex agony booths could selectively induce pain by direct stimulation of the brain, and were primarily used as instruments of torture.[2]
