The Star Trek The Next Generation Communicator Badge Prop Replica was crafted using one of the few remaining sets of original molds, painstakingly restored in the artisan model shop at Quantum Mechanix. With the restored molds, QMx was able to replicate the prop's size and shape exactly. An actual screen-used badge was used to get the colors and paint details correct. Finally, the badge was rendered in gold and silver-finished metal (the on-screen props were made of painted resin).
What sets this wearable badge apart from the original is the clasp, which uses strong short-field magnets that are embedded in the badge and the glossy back-plate. No more pinholes in delicate fabric. It can even be worn on leather and suede! Ages 4 and up.
