Re: "Second Chances" and its disturbing implications
I don't really understand why people get hung up on the whole "the transporter kills you" thing.
However the transporter does what it does, the end product appears to be identical to the original in all respects. I suppose there might be some metaphysical concerns ("Where did my soul go?") but aside from that, on a practical level it seems like a difference that makes no difference.
