Star Trek (TOS) Original Series Communicator

Star Trek Communicators are fun! 40 years later the famous Original Series Communicator still mesmerises the minds of Star Trek fans with its flip up lid antenna, chirping beeping sounds equipped with lights and spinning moire. Who's the trekkiest dude in town? How are you going to prove your Trekkie credentials? Easy.

Your gonna have your trekker mates envious when you take out your Starfleet Communicator and do a "Beam me up scotty" Yessss! watch their faces crumple in despair!
"I have'nt got one, its not fair." will come the reply.
Well now you can own this special mystical treasure by visiting the World's Largest Star Trek Store. Be the good guy and spread the word...

We've all seen Kirk's bridge crew contacting the USS Enterprise 1701 with "beam me up" instructions to the transporter room... the Communicator is crucial for keeping in touch when separated on a hostile planet not to mention communicating between ships. The Communicator is a highly adaptable device used by Starfleet crewmembers. It's always carried on landing party duty. This vital tool is a lifesaver essential to Starfleet's mission of exploration and has saved hundreds of lives.

Communicators are useful for establishing transporter coordinates by the Enterprise's Transporter Chief who localizes the signal and just beams up the owner. When two communicators are placed together thus generating a sonic beam, they can produce powerful vibrations causing rock formations to explode.
In times of urgency the communicator can covertly transmit an emergency signal which requests emergency beam out without Kirk or Spock having to say a word. The most unusual case of the (TOS) Communicator is when Kirk uses his Communicator to make contact with Spock's brain. Kirk gets to talk to Spock's Brain which has been wired into the main control system used to run a complex in the Sigma Draconis System.

Live Long and Prosper, Trekkers! Enjoy Your Star Trekking!

I think the Spock Brain episode is widely regarded as a mistake, a piece of humour by the author that somehow was produced and aired ;)

On a more positive note, I've just seen the Voyager episode, Distant Origin. It is remarkable! Finally we see an interesting alien race (not just a shaggy face or corrugated forehead) with a well thought out culture and superior technology. They are not changed by their encounter with humanity; they simply reaffirm their philosophy, their version of history.

Star Trek is full of surprises!
