Digital Non-secure Voice Terminal
I don't even remember how I came to own this odd piece of military surplus, but I know I acquired it in a quest to uncover the origin of some "Battlestar Galactica" television reboot props. The device was most likely built in the 1980s, but it fit right into the retro-futuristic aesthetic of "BSG."
At one point, I planned to make my office look like a set from "Battlestar." This phone was to be mounted to the wall to add to the look, but I soon realized the limitations of my set design skills and it ended up in the closet. I still wear my brass dog tags on occasion, though.
