I've seen this posted a few times, and I'm not following. How does a transwarp transporter replace a starship? How does TB accomplish exploration? How does TB seek out new life and new civilizations? How does TB go where no man has gone before? Don't you need endpoint coordinates even for transwarp beaming? Finally, how does TB face and repel an aggressive invading species? Sorry, I just don't buy it. Sure, commercial transportation will be laying off jobs, but star fleet is much more than just a way to get from point A to point B.
A good example is Stargate. The Ancients had the network,but they still needed to send out explorers and seed ships to add planets to the network. It isn't enough to have the tech to get there, you have to know where you're going. Look what happened in ST09, Scotty nearly got killed when the TWBeamed onto the Enterprise.
