Re: Transporters too Good
One point you guys seem to miss, though.
The transwarp beaming device can fit inside of a duffle bag...
...HOOK THAT THING UP TO A STARSHIP! Transwarp beam a starship! BAM! Instant-travel through space.
And maybe the starship ends up materializing, half a galaxy away, inside its own turbine-room water tank? Er, "inert reactant" tank.
It could happen.
