Re: Any mixed feelings about the transporter?
Every time they used the shuttlecraft, we saw the fx footage from "The Galileo Seven" over and over and over again. So how would using more stock footage of the same thing in more episodes be an improvement? Plus, they would have had to move the life-size prop onto each indoor/outdoor alien planet set.
