Mine s too. Janeway was a great Captain, and the dynamics of the crew made it a show never to miss!
but my question is, how come when someone presses a communicator and says who they are calling the person they're calling doesnt press
anything, woulndt that go to EVER communicator in range?
Yes, it would, unless it is name activated, perhaps?
and when they are done why dont they ever press the off button?
I don't know. They don't ever turn "off" the computer after they are done speaking to it, either.
woulndt everyone be hearing what they are saying after the trasmision is over?
Like I said, perhaps it is name oriented. I don't think the communicators were an issue they wanted to keep straight. I even tried extensive Google
searches for an explanation, to no avail. Perhaps we will find an answer one day.
[edit: Okay, I did find an explanation here
The Vocera Badge connects via an installed wireless LAN to a Vocera server and is operated largely by voice command. (As an option, you also can
connect to analog phone lines by connecting Vocera to a PBX, Centrex or other system.) With a bit of work, these no-hands communicators can become
very useful where wireless LANs based on 802.11b deployments are working.
