Come to think of it, why is it that sometimes they can talk to their ship or crew-mates without touching the com. badge, and sometimes they have to hit it? That has never made sense to me, and I have yet to find a common denominator!!!!

Ok, I think somebody isn't a trekkie. However! When inside the ship, the combadges do not need to be pressed, although people sometimes do! THis is because the internal communications do not need to be activated by hand!

the communicator is always touched unless its a slip up. the fact files explain the programming and usage of communicators in extreme detail

In one episode, Riker was on a planet (can't remember the planet of the ep.) and was using a flashlight that looks a lot like one that you might find today. When he wanted to contact the ship, he hit the comm-badge with the flashlight and it worked. If one was to look into this, one would find that the comm-badge can be used without pressing it, and used by anyone. The only reason that the comm-badge is pressed is for security reasons. A comm-badge can even be incoded with a person's fingerprint so that only that person can use the badge.
