Don't forget the handheld communicators powerful enough for someone at the NZ to have a conversation with someone on Earth. In REAL TIME.
I don't understand this bit. Why would a hand communicator be a less likely way to talk from star to star than a starship communicator? Both are likely to simply hook up to an existing network anyway. It's not as if the hand communicator would have been operated far away from all possible boosters, now is it?

The fact that the conversation took place is not an issue since it would hook up to the nearby transmitter of the ship and the station. What is silly is that Scotty could engage in an unauthorised conversation on a secure facility without them noticing.
What's silly about that? Even if Section 31 was listening in on their conversation, the very next thing Scotty does is jump on a shuttlecraft and leave the planet without telling anyone where he's going. What were they gonna do, shoot a torpedo at his communicator?
