Beam a Vampire into a home uninvited?

Could the Enterprise beam a Vampire into a home it wasn't invited into? (Assuming coordinates have been locked)
Overload the transporters? Destroy the Vampire? Create something like a Tom Riker?
Many possibilities, I'm interested in the answer.

Therapy is a possibility.

Re: Beam a Vampire into a home uninvited?

Well, let's see. In the Buffyverse an vamp seems to encounter an invisble wall when trying to enter uninvited. Maybe the transport would simply fail as if encountering a force field.

IF technology is at all affected by the supernatural, and vice/versa.

It's possible -- as long as the vampire isn't one of the sparkly ones.

Q. What kind of car does a vampire drive?

A. A blood mobile.

You wouldn't be able to establish the transporter lock. Hard science is unarguable.

This thread is trapped in inter-space and should reappear at Stardate 6734.2.

Maybe...

These questions will be answered in the new movie "James T Kirk: Vampire Hunter."
