There were many different versions of each of the TOS ("the original series") Star Trek props, of course... some were very crude, and some were very nicely made. The nicest were what were called "hero props" and these are based upon the hero versions of the props used in the show. There are minor tweeks, mind you (my "Master Replicas" version is not identical to this in shape or form, and it's a near-exact replica of the Nimoy-carried version used on the show) but hese are VERY close. These are all-plastic, with no real metal, but that's to be expected from a toy item. Otherwise, it's about as close to the "real" TOS prop as you're likely to get.

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).

I now own and enjoy all 3 Entertainment Earth tricorder replicas: The Science tricorder, the Medical tricorder, and the Geological tricorder - seen only briefly in the original series third season episode "That Which Survives".

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.

This tricorder is pretty cool. Seriously. The sound effects are clear and crisp, the lighting is even and bright, and the sample vials are an excellent addition. The setback is the craftsmanship- namely superglue smears on the silver paint in the lowest compartment, and most serious- a *gaping hole* in the molding in the second compartment next to the little thimble thingy. I thought I had a random bad piece mold, as the plastic clearly hadn't filled the part mold during manufacturing, but why on earth would anyone use a piece that was clearly not complete? I ordered a replacement with Amazon (which went very smoothly) but the replacement had the *exact* same issue! They both had the same gaping hole in the molding! This is an unacceptable oversight, so who exactly is overseeing the manufacturing of these? The only reason I'm keeping mine is because I'm a huge trekkie and a geologist, and I don't want to do the return dance again. I ended up just sending the second one back because it was shoddily put together (more glue prints and the lowest compartment door was assembled crookedly). I've seen some great stuff from DST and Art Asylum, but the quality of this was just so mixed. Who okays a product that wasn't made right? I've uploaded photos to show where the holes are. Buyer beware. It looks cool and the electronics are flawless, but the case may not be put together so well. Mine also came in the packaging for the "Science Tricorder" with a "geological tricorder" sticker on the window. Seems like a rushed job.
