Wanted some help creating an away team flashlight. I found one that was screen used in the Enterprise series, but they want $1,000 for it. No flashlight should cost anywhere near that. Zooming in on the handle reveals it's a Surefire brand flashlight, but what kind? Or, does anyone have advice on lighting equipment that away teams would bring with them. I know the Voyager series would use the battery powered carry lanterns, not sure of brand. Link for Enterprise flashlight is below:

Being "safe" means settling for less; seeing how I only have one life, I don't intend to squander it on less and I will go after what is important to me. Never settle for less.

WOW! A grand for a torch! That's collecting gone crazy! What intrinsic value could it have that could give it that kind of value in the current economic climate? Maybe it has Jolene Blalock's DNA on it? :naughty3dg:

I remember the torches in Voyager but don't recall what was used in Enterprise - which episode was it used in? How close to canon do you want this to be? Cosplay winning or for a fan film?

Keep us in the loop.

I was dabbling on the Surefire website. Some of those Flashlights are $250. I saw some similar styles. Very pricey equipment.

That is one expensive flashlight. Does it make you a coffee too?
