Re: How widespread is transporter technology?
^ Take the Picard family vineyard, for example. Robert Picard refused to allow replicators in his family's home. I'm guessing that Marie continued this tradition even after Robert and René died. So what's to prevent somebody from stealing some of the wine via transporter? Or the Picard family's possessions? You know they've got to have some pretty valuable stuff, wine or otherwise.
