Staal fixing teleport pod

General Staal uses his baton to repair a teleport pod which was damaged by the Tenth Doctor's sonic screwdriver. (TV: The Sontaran Stratagem).

The Sontaran baton was a device of Sontaran design which was carried by certain high ranking officers of the Sontaran Empire. They were symbols of rank and status, as well as multi-function tools.[source needed]

These long black coloured batons were capable of firing an orange or red beam that was able to stun, injure or kill a target. Furthermore, they were able to repair minor damage to Sontaran technology such as the teleport pod.[source needed]

Group Marshal Stike carried a baton, (TV: The Two Doctors) as did General Staal of the Tenth Sontaran Battle Fleet. (TV: The Sontaran Stratagem / The Poison Sky)

A number of official magazines licenced by the BBC (Doctor Who DVD Files, Doctor Who Monster Invasion and Doctor Who Magazine) refer to this weapon as a "Sontaran swagger stick."
