In their quest to create the definitive Communicator replica, the Master Replicas design team conducted an extensive study of several surviving Communicator props. They took hundreds of detailed measurements and photographs to ensure they would achieve accurate geometric and color reproduction of the prop. They also interviewed the original prop makers and other recognized experts in prop design in order to develop a comprehensive understanding of the design, intended use, and functions of the original prop. The design team even located the actual reel-to-reel tapes of sound effects used on the original series when it was filmed at Desilu Studios. The authentic sound effects featured in the Master Replicas Communicator prop replica were digitally recorded from those original tapes.
