In-joke about the Star Trek Communicators, right after Harry Kim receives the "Greeting from Earth" message from Rain Robinson he proceeds to contact the away team on the surface. As the Captain's Communicator beeps all of the people walking past the away team immediately reach for their cellphones to answer them. This was probably a reference to the similarity of 1990's cellphone design and technology to the "futuristic" flip-top Communicators from the Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) Original Series.
