An Identidisk is a subminiaturized micro-circuitry, device, usually installed in a service-issued belt buckle, which positively identifies the individual to whom it was issued.
Among the most widely recognized of these in Beyond are the winged serpent of the Scout Service; the crossed spaceship and fouled anchor of the Merchant Service; the crossed lance and laser of the Imperial Marines; the Imperial Navy's famous ringed anchor on a stylized sunburst; and the battle helmet-surmounted crest of crossed lasers of the Imperial Army.
The specialized scout version of this object is known as Scout Service Insignia.
