  • De populaire term voor Starfleets moderne communicator, wanneer deze is verwerkt is een broche voor op de borst- in tegenstelling tot de originele modellen die gebruikt werden door verkenningsteams. De combadge heeft verschillende vormen gehad in de sinds de uitvinding in de 24e eeuw, beginnend met de marine-stijl knop in 2344 en later de simpelere pijlkop in 2350. De pijlkop stond op een gouden behuizing, eerst met een elliptische ovaal, die later werd vervangen door een schuin geplaatste rechthoek.
  • Combadges are used for communications from individuals to other persons, starships, planetary locations and anywhere else within the range of the device. They also function as a locator device for transporter beams and have integrated universal translators. (VOY episode: The 37's, et al.)
  • In Starfleet, the combadge replaced standalone communicators in the early 24th century. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise" , "Family" ) Similar devices were used by other organizations, including the Bajoran Militia. In Starfleet, the combadge was worn on the left breast of the person's uniform, whereas the Bajoran Militia's combadge was worn on the right breast of the uniform. They were activated by tapping them once and deactivated by tapping them twice. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; TNG: "The Game" ; DS9: "Move Along Home", "Past Tense, Part II") (Note: the EMH of USS Voyager used this technique not to deactivate his combadge, but to gain the attention of the ship's crew.) (VOY: "Caretaker")
  • An early version of the combadge was in use by the late 23rd century. (Tales of the Seventh Fleet) A combadge can be modified for various functions, including a subspace beacon (usually for distress calls). Its power cell could also be used to power other technology. Upon resignation or relief of duty, Starfleet personnel must relinquish their combadges. Sudden resignations often involve the removal of the combadge as a symbolic act. (TNG: "Redemption"; DS9: "Paradise Lost", "Tacking Into the Wind", "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges")

  • In Starfleet, the combadge replaced standalone communicators in the early 24th century. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise" , "Family" ) Similar devices were used by other organizations, including the Bajoran Militia. In Starfleet, the combadge was worn on the left breast of the person's uniform, whereas the Bajoran Militia's combadge was worn on the right breast of the uniform. They were activated by tapping them once and deactivated by tapping them twice. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; TNG: "The Game" ; DS9: "Move Along Home", "Past Tense, Part II") (Note: the EMH of USS Voyager used this technique not to deactivate his combadge, but to gain the attention of the ship's crew.) (VOY: "Caretaker") Combadges were used for on-board ship communication with other Starfleet personnel when using the internal communication system was impossible or impractical, for accessing the on-board computer when not in an area that the computer is monitoring, for ship-to-shore communications, and for direct communication to another combadge. Combadges were configured to act as universal translators. (DS9: "For the Uniform"; VOY: "The Cloud", "The 37's", "Investigations") A Bajoran combadge is capable of recording logs such as that of the chief of security. (DS9: "The Ascent") Starfleet combadges silently provided identification to starship computers. For example, when a person wearing a combadge accessed a certain console, the computer logged the individual's identification to that access. (TNG: "The Drumhead" ) The Starfleet combadge was a crystalline composite of gold, microfilament, silicon, beryllium, and carbon-70. (TNG: "The Last Outpost" , "Time's Arrow" ; VOY: "Hope and Fear") Due to the size of the combadge, its working range was limited to five hundred kilometers, although a starship could boost the signal to bridge larger distances. (TNG: "11001001" ) The combadge could be opened for maintenance purposes or to be used as a beacon. (TNG: "Brothers" ; VOY: "Coda") A combadge could also contact or be reached by a starship even if it was traveling at warp speed. (TNG: "The Schizoid Man" ; VOY: "Resolutions") In emergency situations, a combadge could be modified for use in other applications. It could be converted into a subspace distress beacon, or the tiny power cell could be extracted for other uses. (DS9: "Rocks and Shoals") Lieutenant Worf used it to power a homemade field generator for several seconds. (TNG: "A Fistful of Datas" ) In 2374, Captain Kathryn Janeway of the USS Voyager was able to modify Seven of Nine's Borg implants to escape the brig of the USS Dauntless using pieces of her combadge. (VOY: "Hope and Fear") If the casing of the combadge was ever cracked, an emergency distress signal was emitted, mainly to help searchers locate victims. (TNG: "A Fistful of Datas" ; VOY: "Time and Again") Combadges, when destroyed by an electrical force, could cause damage to the wearer's clothing. (TNG: "Thine Own Self" ) As a symbol of loss of membership in Starfleet, personnel that had resigned or had been relieved of duty were required to turn in their combadges. Additionally, personnel confined to a brig were not permitted to retain their combadges during their confinement. (TNG: "Redemption" , "Journey's End" ; DS9: "Paradise Lost", "Inquisition"; VOY: "Thirty Days") Taking off one's combadge constituted taking off one's uniform. (TNG: "Redemption" , "Journey's End" ; DS9: "Tacking Into the Wind", "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges") Combadges could be used by the transporter as a way to lock on to Starfleet personnel; more generally, the transporter could lock onto any person or object with a combadge attached or nearby, thus making transport faster and more accurate. Chief Engineer Geordi La Forge used his combadge to allow the transporter to beam off an explosive device that the Ansata terrorists planted on the USS Enterprise-D during their mission on Rutia IV. (VOY: "Caretaker", "Tattoo", "Investigations", "The Chute"; TNG: "Justice" , "The High Ground" ) When Ferengi briefly took over the Enterprise in 2369, they were captured by attaching combadges to them and using the badges to beam them into a secured transporter room. (TNG: "Rascals" ) Commander Benjamin Sisko used his combadge to beam the embryonic lifeform off Deep Space 9 into space in 2369. (DS9: "Q-Less") A Starfleet combadge was one of the items the Dopterian thief put on the table after Constable Odo arrested him. (DS9: "The Forsaken") While escaping Major Kira in 2369, Chief O'Brien and Commander Sisko left their combadges in an airlock corridor to prevent being found by the Bajorans. (DS9: "Dramatis Personae") At least five combadges have been left by Starfleet personnel on Earth centuries before they were invented; Lieutenant Commander Data sold his combadge to Frederick La Rouque for three dollars in the year 1893 to buy his way into a poker game (TNG: "Time's Arrow" ), Henry Starling confiscated the combadge of Captain Kathryn Janeway and the holographic combadge of The Doctor in 1996 (VOY: "Future's End", "Future's End, Part II") and the combadges of Commander Benjamin Sisko and Dr. Julian Bashir were stolen while they were incapacitated on the streets of San Francisco in 2024. (DS9: "Past Tense, Part I")

(TNG: "Redemption"; DS9: "Paradise Lost", "Tacking Into the Wind", "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges") By 2379, An upgraded version of the combadge was being field tested on board the USS Prometheus at the request of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. This version of the combadge contained a dual interplexed subspace transceivers, a secondary power cell and a perscan module. Outwardly this combadge appeared as a silver Starfleet delta insignia without a background. (Star Trek: Prometheus)
