They were given away at the winter wonderland event that is going on. Unfortunately they aren't available anymore.

Holoweapons lets think

*EMP pulse* swing and a miss *facepalm* there are problems with this design. :D

I think Starfleet doesn't really care about EMP for whatever reason. Maybe all their electronics are hardened or run on an electromagnetically inert particle instead of electrons (in TNG and DS9 it was neutronic, and Voyager had organics), but when your shields wink out, your guns turn off, and judging from the lights on a lot of armor types I'm guessing our armor has some sort of mini integrity field strengthening it... I imagine your Bat'leth blade disappearing is the least of your concerns.

Considering the fact that we are already today capable of shielding electronics from EMP, I would imagine that by the 24th and 25th centuries it would be no problem.

Heck, combadges still have a functional emergency beacon after being in a polaric ion detonation. :p

those are "nanopulse" weaponry, not holo weapons. the glowy parts are plasma energy contained in force fields.

I dunno. Omega Force still seems to use good old radio wave walkie talkies. :D

Thoes walkie talkies are mostlikly more than what they look the Omega gear looks like its for prolonged operations as an infiltration/commando unit. The walkie talkies are mostlikly some form of intersystem trancever with at least twice the range of the simple combage with tons more features to scramble, encript, intercept and decode communications with the same or less power of a starships communications array. Im guesing the Omegas are equivalent to Republic Commandoes of Star Wars durring the Clone Wars era.
