'Star Trek' Communicator really isn't

Why doesn't someone make a real phone out of one?

Entertainment Earth

Of all the ridiculous Star Trekproduct marketing in the world, we're surprised that a working Communicator phone hasn't become de rigueur among the nerdsome faithful. In fact, the last one we heard of was a DIY version on eBay, but even that one was just a Bluetooth receiver that still needed to connect to a cell phone.

Granted, you could get an Enterprise model, but it's not exactly convenient to lug around the convention floor. So we could only imagine the disappointment over this "exclusive" Communicator replica that can only feign conversation with sound effects and recorded phrases, according to Chip Chick. If you're really hard-core, you could probably gut this toy and try to fashion a real phone out of it. After all, whatever you come up with, it's got to look better than this.
