The makeshift lightning rod that Desmond makes. ("Every Man for Himself")

A lightning rod was built by Desmond after he failed to convince Claire to move her tent. The lightning rod apparently saved Claire's life when it later was struck by lightning. ("Every Man for Himself")

The implication is that Desmond foresaw the coming of a storm, and where lightning was going to strike nearby, whereupon he asked Claire to move. (In later episodes, it was confirmed that Desmond could foresee events through "flashes". Failing to convince her, he built a lightning rod. However he called his lightning rod an experiment, indicating that he was to some degree unsure about his prediction. The successful outcome confirmed that he was able to see the future, and furthermore affect its outcome via his own actions, an illustration of the theme of "fate versus free will".

Desmond later revealed that it was made to save not Claire's, but Charlie's life. ("Flashes Before Your Eyes")

HURLEY: Is that -- art?
DESMOND: Nope. Just an experiment.
HURLEY: Okay. You want some fruit salad?
DESMOND: Thanks, I'm not hungry.
[Hurley starts walking away from the shelter]
DESMOND: You might want to wait a minute.
HURLEY: Why's that?
[A sudden shower begins, then lightning strikes the lightning rod]


  • The lightning rod was constructed from a wood tower, cabling from the fuselage to conduct to earth ground, and the five iron from the golf clubs, borrowed from Paulo, who at the time was driving kiwis into the ocean. The construction looked so odd that Hurley asked if it was simply artwork.

Known owner(s)






The Lightning Rod was a small, beat-up freighter owned by Peckhum, who used it to deliver shipments to various clients and to get to his Orbital Solar Energy Transfer Satellite in which he a large mirror used to focus warmth and sunlight from Coruscant's tiny sun on the planets extreme northern and southern latitudes, warming the environment by a few degrees to make more of the land area on the ecumenopolis habitable, the most notable being Luke Skywalker's Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4.

Following the the siege of the Jedi Praxeum by the Shadow Academy in 23 ABY, Peckhum gave her to the redeemed Zekk, who used it during his career as a bounty hunter.
