I would argue that this example would not qualify as either being "alternate" or a "comm-badge."
D'oh! Good catch. That's what I get for thinking TNG Trivia while multitasking. Not a good combination.
Yeah, not a communicator, but ironically enough, it looks like the exact same badge that Rachel Garret is wearing some 66 years after Morgan Bateson
It's been a good day since I answered this & no one seems to be suggesting it's incorrect, so I'll just go & ask a new question
In keeping with the current theme, how many outfits, costumes, or forms has Q ever appeared in, on TNG? Feel free to name them if you can
