Star Trek: The Original Series, TOS TRICORDER - EDITH KEELER

replica movie prop

I had an old full-scale static replica of the TOS Tricorder and decided to upgrade it.  I wanted to make it unique, so I decided to pattern it after the banged-up tricorder that Mr Spock used in the TOS episode City On The Edge Of  Forever.  This was the only TOS episode where the tricorder's screen wasn't just blank gray - in one scene Spock displays a newspaper clipping describing the death of the humanitarian Edith Keeler.  I replicated that screen image in Photoshop  and, just as a finishing touch, created a display base that simulates the primitive vacuum-tube circuit that Spock built to  drive the tricorder.  The finished tricorder has working lights and sound effects in addition to the detailed screen image.
