This question already has an answer here:
In the Star Trek: The Next Generation Episode The Best of Both Worlds Captain Picard is abducted by the Borg and altered to serve as Locutus. As a part of this, they attach a red laser to one of his implants. What is the point of this? It is never mentioned in the show and, similarly, it never appears to have been used as a weapon by Picard.
Does this laser serve a purpose?
