Star Trek Communicator Replica Cell Phone


...is pushed back until 2006.

I blame the Klingons.

Check out this too-cool phone... I dreamed about this back in the 1970s...

Are you sure you are not violating the Prime Directive by giving us this information?

HA!

OK, I'll just jump through this glowing, donut-shaped rock and fix things... HEY, that lady over there is gonna get run over! I gotta save her... be right back...

Does anyone else get depressed thinking about how GREAT Star Trek was? I mean that last movie was such a suck-fest. I never watched a full episode of "Enterprise" because I couldn't tolerate that AWFUL themesong!

I have to say that I only ever watched the original series and the early-'70s animated one... the sequels just didn't do ANYTHING AT ALL for me... too bland - not enough primary colors maybe and I really enjoy broad themes and classic '60s TV acting.

Thera Veda all the way...

I'm a fan of the original series as well. My fiancee' liked all of the spinoffs and still has "gaps" he's trying to fill by watching the episodes on DVD. I like some of the characters from Next Gen but never got into it. As for the communicator phone..."Make it so"...

I'm still waiting for a signal watch!

And I almost hate to mention it, but in the greatest movie ever in the history of the world, BUCKAROO BANZAI, they had "Go Phones" that predated today's cellular phones.

Yes, I know Dick Tracy had "Two-Way Wrist Radios", but that doesn't count.

I also saw somewhere that somebody is making Next Generation-style cell phones where you touch your collar and talk to the air, but that looks too much like that weird guy behind the dumpster at Mall-Wart for my tastes... give me the big clunky flip-top communicator.

Speaking of signal watches Steve, can I scan your "ALL-STEVE" comics in and post them here?

A whole new generation needs to see them.

Yeah! I want to see!!!

Make mine "All-STEVE" comics,please!

Uhhh, no!

I am partial to the oringial series as well. Next Generation was okay, as was Deep Space Nine. Voyager was horrible, and Enterprise just bad. Kirk and Spock forever.

Steve,
PLEASE All Steve ALl Steve All Steve!!! I no longer have my copies, but they were laugh out loud funny. You have to let Bill post them here.

Bill,
do you still have any of the Tribbles we made in grade school?
heh heh

 
At 11/16/2005 3:53 PM, Blogger Bill at Comix Connection said...

Hmmmmm... wonder if those "ALL-STEVE COMICS" are public domain yet? Heh heh heh.

No tribbles survived, Ned. They must have eaten that poisoned Quadrotriticale.

I'm sorry I knew that.


I just wish I still had the Communicator, Phaser and Tricorder that my sister Karen and I made from scratch... I even had batteries and lights in the Tricorder... sheesh, now you can buy all that stuff.

"Quadrotriticale"
Not only did you KNOW that, but you knew how to spell it properly!

Even see "Trekkies?" It's a hilarious documentary that shows you some of the most die-hard trek fans ever. Like the guy who built an exact replica of the original bridge in his house. Scary yet funny.

Well, see there is a real Canadian wheat called "Triticale", and the writers just extrapolatedHOLY SMOKES, I'M DOING IT AGAIN! BACK INTO THE PIT OF MY PSYCHE, TREKKIE-BILL!
