Re: One Giant Transporter Pad?
Also wasn't the transporter on the NX really only intended to be used for cargo? Perhaps, while it ended up being used for the purpose, it wasn't planned to be used to transport multiple people.
Trek has already established that transporting cargo is considerably easier, so I don't have much of a problem with one large pad for that purpose.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
