Re: Transporters too Good
Or then Scotty only made the devices a tad less lethal, but that was enough for Spock Prime's purposes of stopping Nero; Spock wouldn't have worried all that much about the personal safety of Kirk at that point.
Aren't those concerns pretty much one and the same, though? If Kirk turns into a pile of goo or gets transported into a bulkhead, he isn't going to be doing any Nero-stopping. And Spock Prime did seem concerned with nuverse-Kirk's destiny.
