The "Geological Tricorder" was seen only once, in the episode "That Which Survives." It was the only visually-different version of the Tricorder used in the series, but the concept had always been that different variations of tricorders could be set up easily. The top head (think of this like a little portable computer) would be constant among all of them, the middle compartment usually had the main sensor and library data stack, and the lower compartment typically had a customized rigout (including removable science or medical scanners). The sides would be the power cells, as well as the location where the carry strap attached.
In this case, the basic body for the tricorder is identical to the "science" and "medical" versions already released. The lower compartment is modified, however, so that instead of the little removable medical or science scanner, there is a clear plastic rack (seen here separate, but actually glued to the door interior) which holds two vials of "collected samples" (presumably for detailed analysis from the other hardware in the lower compartment).Read more ›
The tricorder, originally carried by the ill-fated (though non-red shirted) senior geologist Lt. D'Amato, was later taken up by Lt. Sulu and set to broadcast an 'automatic distress' beacon while he stood watch for the mysterious alien woman Losira who had recently killed Lt. D'Amato.
There is about an 8-second close-up of the tricorder as Losira shuts off its beacon.
The replica faithfully reproduces the appearance of the TV prop including the flashing, blue 'distress light' panel. It also features original series 'scanning' sound effects, as well as several phrases spoken by Majel Barrett Roddenberry as the Enterprise 'computer voice'.
Included with the tricorder are two stoppered, plastic vials containing simulated "ore samples". These are in actuality bright blue and pink plastic granules. The vials are stored in and are removable from the lower compartment of the tricorder.
Buyer note that the vials that came with my tricorder came with different colored stoppers than are shown in the product photo. Also, while the vials are removable, the clear plastic holder they are stored in is not. It is cemented permanently into the tricorder body and not removable as shown in the product photo.
If I could change one thing about any of the three tricorders, it would be to use a stronger, thicker material for the carrying strap. The existing material is adequate for display & moderate handling, bit I feel it would not hold up long to certain activities such as wearing the tricorder as part of a costume for example.
Overall though, a great piece for the Trek enthusiast or collector.
