Nemesis gave us rank pip-sized transporters.
That was only an enhancer and/or remote, not an actual transporter.

TNG and ST'09 gave us a software patch that gives extremely extreme range.
And how much energy did they require and how safe were they?

The Kelvans gave us superwarp drive.
Perhaps only safe to use in the space between the galaxies. Also was this not the basis for Excelsior's transwarp drive?

Voyager gave us infinity warp (with icky side effects... which were cured).
Did this actually happen? How much of it was hallucinations?

Barclay upped the Enterprise's shield strength by 300% with a software patch.
How much battery life did Enterprise loose due to this?

Transporters have cured ageing and all disease.
Well yes, but there may be some cumulative error.

We can time travel via a number of means.
Yes, and?

Old Janeway gave us invincible batmobile armour and super duper torpedoes.
In the chronologically last episode. How much of it did they reverse-engineer?

Best of Both Worlds gave us a mega super deflector beam of death.
Good for big cubes, but perhaps less so for normal, average-sized ships.

Transporters can duplicate people.
Not that much different from cloning, would be in the darker grey area of Federation law.

We can create sentient holograms on a whim,
Agree. But creates ethical implications.

or use ancient machines to create android duplicates.
Yes, but their base programing seem anti-social. And the Federation seem so be lacking in AI-developers.

Kirk and Spock drank a serum to unlock telekinetic powers.
But would it be safe for long-term usage for humans, there can be side-effects.


We just do not know enough.
