com badges interface with a ship's computer


Combadges are capable of communicating directly with each other, or through the ship's comm system. They are also able to communicate with the computer itself, such as requesting a runabout computer beam you up when it is in orbit with no one on it.

normally, when onboard ship, communicators connect to the ship's communications system, but on away missions, or on occasions where one does not want their conversation monitored by security, they may connect directly to each other, PADDs and Tricorders can also be used in this manner.
