Re: Transporters compatibility

A transporter is a subspace device.
I'd argue that it is not, because a "subspace transporter" is a special type of machine differing from the regular one somehow.
It's a subspace device in the sense that it engages the subspace domain. Data said as much in "Best of Both Worlds, part 2:"

DATA: The signals are interactive across a subspace domain similar to that of a transporter beam...
