Online gift retailer Firebox.com is helping to connect sci-fi fans the world over, with the launch of the world’s first functioning Star Trek Communicator.
The Star Trek: The Original Series Bluetooth Communicator from The Wand Company has been developed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic sci-fi series next year.
With the set, fans of all ages will be able to make and receive mobile calls via the exact replica of the iconic communication device used by Captain Kirk and the Enterprise crew.
As well as being 3D scanned from the last remaining Communicator prop in existence, the device boasts a host of authentic Star Trek sounds and recorded conversation fragments.
“With Star Trek’s 50th anniversary next year, we were thrilled to be able to make a real working Communicator, something we know the fans have dreamed about owning since it was first used in the show,” said Chris Barnardo, co-founder of The Wand Company.
“The success of our Star Trek: The Original Series Phaser has shown us how passionate and dedicated Star Trek fans really are, so it has been very exciting to work on this project.”
Debuting at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, the Star Trek: The Original Series Bluetooth Communicator is available to pre-order at Firebox.com, now.
