Commbadge

This item was the only standard issue communicator in service from Starfleet's logo re-design 2371 to the late 2380's-90's. Being worn on the left breast of the individual's uniform, it transmitted information to the ships computer, about the wearer's vital signs, location, and could also serve as a distress beacon. This model communicator also boasted several other technical improvements and innovations over the previous model which made it more versatile, such as increased energy capacity.

This prop was used begining in ST:Voyager, and soon was followed up by the rest of the other series in production, which included ST:DS9 and the TNG Movies.
