Firing switch

Commander Chekov utilizes the Enterprise's firing switch

A firing switch was a manual control aboard starships, allowing the tactical officer to fire weapons at a moment's notice.

The post-refit USS Enterprise NCC-1701 instituted a firing switch at the weapons station, utilized for the firing of photon torpedoes. Taking the form of a small, joystick-like device contained behind a panel, it was utilized by Commander Chekov in 2285, during the Enterprise's battle against the USS Reliant, which was under the command of Khan Noonien Singh.
