Re: Transporters to Good

If anything, the standard late 2250s transporters appear more primitive than the ones Kirk used in TOS a decade later. They have trouble locking onto falling people, they feature manual (joystick) targeting as a prominent option, and the transporter room appears to feature "radiation shielding". But the difference to TOS probably isn't all that great, and "shielding" for the transporter operator reappears in the TOS movies. (Or is that just a splatter screen that keeps the operator clean in all situations, including those where the structural integrity of the transportee is compromised?)
