I’m coming off the Death Flu 2008. During my time of holding my bed down, I watched a lot of my Season One box set of Star Trek (the Original Series). Classic, buff Captain Kirk swaggering all over the galaxy with his ever-present Science Officer Spock and his impudent eyebrow cocking. Great stuff. The gadgets were awesome too.
Imagine my glee when I saw on Think Geek that they sell the Star Trek Classic Communicator! This is better than that time when I got that Tribble! From the website:
Now you too can talk to the Enterprise no matter where you are. Just flip up the grill, and you’ll be greeted with the lights and sounds you’ve come to know and love. But not content with mere beeps, the UFP has packed this replica with voice clips from the actual series. Delight as you hear Mr. Spock ask you if you want an armed party beamed down and thrill as you call the Enterprise and hear Bridge here, Captain. So equip yourself with the Communicator that futuristically prognosticated the invention of the cell phone, and get ready for a communication . . . from the stars.
* Full-size replica with lights and sounds straight from the TV show.
* Moving moire pattern.
* Awesome “Hailing Function” – press a button, close the grill, and 5 seconds later the Enterprise will be calling.
* Flip open metal grill.
* Over 20 sound effects and phrases, including “Spock here, Captain.” – “Scotty here, Captain.” – “Transporter room ready to beam up.” – and more!
Although it sadly does not come with your own USS Enterprise, you can show off your Trekkie cred with this awesome gadget for only $29.99.
