In the glossary to K.R.A. DeCandido's "A Burning House", on p.393, it says:

"{ghIntaq}. A type of spear with a wooden haft and a curved, two-bladed
metal point. Also the name given to a person who serves as a close and
trusted adviser to a House. It is possible that the latter usage evolved
from the first, with the adviser being analogized to a House head's trusted
weapon. Sometimes Anglicized as gin'tak. [Spear first seen in "Birthright
Part 2" (TNG); adviser first referenced in "Firstborn" (TNG).]"
