Re: BY ANY OTHER NAME: Rojan and the cubes

Or maybe the "missing mass" is stored as pure energy (in the "projector" located in Engineering). I always figured the transporter as a derivative of phaser technology. The transportee is "disintegrated" in the chamber. Then a beam of energy projected at a planet is "molded" by the pattern stored in the transporter.

Perhaps the Kelvin technology is a super "Zip file." No buffer degradation, as with the transporter... unless someone uses your foam polyhedron to arrange flowers.
