Re: Transporters compatibility

I think it's fair to say that ship-to-ship usually is one pad on ship A dematerializing the subject and beaming that to the other ship's receiver which ship B in turn takes over and reassembles using it's own machinery. This is why everyone seems to rematerialise with a visual effect appropriate to the transporter pad, but, if ship A is beaming into the ship someplace other than in the target ship's transport room, you'll note that they always use their own alien visual effect. This would be just using Ship B's machinery and bypassing any signal hand off.
