Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Tricorder
replica movie prop
A tricorder is a multifunction hand-held device useful for data sensing, analysis, and recording data, with many specialized abilities which make it an asset to crews aboard starships and space stations as well as on away missions. Among the options was a heavy-duty tricorder, often used during landing parties. Bulkier than previous designs, this tricorder featured a handle and a large head featuring a line of blinking indicator lights.
Not shown in close-up, this large tricorder may have been intended only for landing parties. It was seen in Star Trek II only - first carried by Chekov and Terrell during their visit to Ceti Alpha V, and again used by Saavik aboard Regula I. It was replaced in the next film by a more familiar design. This tricorder model was seen in "The Nth Degree" as part of Barclay's elaborate computer interface on the holodeck.
This static resin replica (hollow for future electronics install) was painted and contructed to as close as possible as the screen used tricorder. It also features and a vintage early 80s camera shoulder strap.
