I see both arguments, but IMO using the transporter in this way is not as believable as, say, in "Relics" where they at least tried to explain that Scotty had set the buffer to loop the pattern.

Here, taking something out of "energy" seems more of a stretch.

"Unnatural Selection" with the transporter as "fountain of youth" was also sketchy at best.
Don't really see it as a stretch, who knows what can be done a few centuries from now.

Our heroes spend a lot of time talking about how superior they are to the aliens and 20th-century humans, when all they’re really demonstrating is a complete failure to appreciate the challenges faced by these supposedly inferior beings.
Well, they are superior to 20th and 21st century humans, since I don't recall too many fucking each other over in the name of profit and percentages.
