Star Trek Communicator: Kirk to Geek, Come in?

by Paul Strauss

What die-hard Trekkie could possibly walk around without a communicator? Now you can own this nifty remake of the original 23rd-century Starfleet communicator from the 1960s TV classic.

Star Trek Communicator

The modern-day replica offers up blinking lights and sounds just like the original Starfleet-issue communications gizmo. It’s even got a cool moving moire effect, making it even more retro-fabulous. I also love the “Hailing” feature, which lets you press a button on the face, flip the metal grill closed, and receive a call back from the Enterprise a few seconds later.

It’s loaded with over 20 phrases and sound effects from the classic Trek universe, including original sound samples from the TV show. While it’s not actually functional for two-way communications, it would be cool to crack one open and stuff your cell phone inside of it. I’d love to walk down the street making a call with one of these in my hand. After all, who needs Bluetooth headsets when you’ve got one of these?

The Star Trek Classic Communicator is available now from ThinkGeek for $29.99.
