Re: Revolution - season 1 part 2 -
But even Trek isn't consistent within its own magical techno-babble. Great example is the trasnporters. Multiple times we are drumbeat told that the process of transporting is not cloning.
But yet - in one episode it creates a duplicate Riker. So is it cloning to transport or not?
They explained away that anomaly by stating that Riker's transporter beam hit some swamp gas from a weather balloon, was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
