Re: First Replicator Usage?

The problem I have with the Tribbles being beamed is how TNG noted that the replicators and (at the default setting) cargo transporters use "molecular level" beaming, which is good for inanimate organic objects, but insufficient for living tissue.

Now I admit this is a TNG thing, but since TNG ships likely have more available power then a TOS ship does and TNG ships use the lower-resolution technology, why wouldn't the TOS ships do so?

As such, if the tribbles were beamed, they should not have arrived in the exact same state they departed in...
