No doubt some of you, at some stage in the past, have affected an amateur performance piece parodying Captain Kirk speaking into his communicator. You haven't? I haven't, either. Actually I have, to my eternal shame ...
Erm, basically what you do is grab your cell phone, make an electronic paging sound with your mouth, and say something like this:
'Captain's Log, stardate 2367.3333 recurring. We've ... landed on an alien planet that ... orbits a distant ... star. There seems to ... be, mister Spock, a ... surplus of green-skinned alien ... women for me to ... seduce. And that makes me ... a happy camper.' Etc.
Notice that the pauses (as represented by the ellipses) are intentional, mimicking the staggered delivery style of the actor portraying Kirk.
So what's this got to do with anything? Actually it has to do with something, and that something is the Star Trek Communicator Phone. Yes, you no longer have to pretend your cell phone is a communicator because you can have a phone that is the communicator.
