Definitely a Starfleet communicator.
Well. I guess we know what Doc did after Back to the Future III.
It would appear two votes in the negative from my friends in the USofA.
Given the date of the film, 1928, if it were a cell phone there is no way it could work as the infrastructure wouldn't be set up for her to talk to someone else.
That's right. No cell towers, unless is was a satellite phone. But then it would have to be one that communicates on trans-dimensional frequencies, pending (of course) the configuration of the space-time continuum at solar noon. And don't get me started on wormholes and the black hole of Cygnus X-1...
Of course, it could be that the Enterprize got flung back in time or used the Guardian of Forever to go back & the person was 1 of the crew in disguise talking on his/her communicators.Maybe the person was an agent for the Daleks or Cybermen hiding out from the Doctor? Or maybe an agent for the Master?
Indeed, my good man, most enlightening points dost thou make.That one person - could it have been Joan Collins in disguise? There may be a caveat, however. From what I'm hearing, the Guardian of Forever will not permit her to enter the Stargate ever since she did Dynasty.As for the Daleks and Cybermen - not too sure Earth ca. 1920s is of interest to them. Last I heard, they hijacked the TARDIS and are scoping out planets in the Andromeda galaxy.But, hey, I ramble...
The guy is seriously entertaining the possibility that this is a time traveler? Would a civilization with technology advanced enough to travel through time still be carrying glunky mobile phones?By the way: who holds their phones in their fists like that?
So, Anita, it is safe to assume you don't believe the guy? :)
You may so assume!Although I think Patrick Button may be on to something...
Damn it, Anita. I'm a blogger not a communications engineer.
Ha ha ha ha
I'm dying over here. Just watched the latest Star Trek movie with the kids last night...the one with the young AND old Spock.
I saw the new Star Trek film too. It was done well. The actor that portrayed McCoy had him down to a T.Thanks for dropping in.
If it's a cell phone, I can only imagine what the roaming charges must be! Oy!Al - the Doctor's enemies would be smart to hide out in Hollywood - they'd fit right in with the rest of the crazies.
As for roaming charges, I would estimate 2x10^23 Federation dollars per galaxial minute. This excludes regions with wormhole-induced time distortions, whereof additional costs would apply, approximately represented with Hermite's differential equation such that y"-2xy'+2ny=0, assuming (of course) Brownian motion in atomic particles. :)
TH2 - but that's only during non-peak hours. What about during peak time?
Damn it, Larry! I'm a blogger not a inter-galactic hyper-drive engineer. Ask Sr. Patricia, she's way out there.
