Re: "Second Chances" and its disturbing implications

I would assume that episodes such as TNG Realm of Fear, and ENT Vanishing Point were deliberately written to 'assure' viewers that their favourite characters were not being killed off (and merely duplicated) each time they stepped onto a transporter pad. This is on the basis of an apparent continuity of consciousness of the person being transported.

Another disturbing implication of the Riker style duplication, is that it would seem perfectly plausible to create a clone (or more) of oneself for nefaroius purposes.
