This TNG communicator badge was crafted using one of the only remaining sets of original molds, which was painstakingly restored in QMX's artisan model shop. With the restored molds they were able to replicate the prop's size
and shape exactly. To get the colors and paint details, they studied an actual screen-used badge. And once they had the design of the original matched, they took the whole thing a step further - rendering the replica 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 itself and in a glossy backplate. No more pinholes in delicate fabric. It can even be worn on leather and suede.
