Who Hates Transporting the Most?

Rank the five biggest haters of transporting in the Star Trek universe. Dr. McCoy, Dr. Pulaski, and Barclay would be on the list, I'm thinking, but I don't know who else.

^I don't remember anyone else complaining about it except for the Enterprise (NX-01) crew, because it was new.

Pulaski, I mean she used a shuttle to transfer to the Enterprise.

I would say Pulaski, she was odd anyhow.

Re: Who Hates Transporting the Most?

I guess initially Barclay would've hated transporting the most, since he was so terrified of doing so that he skipped out on his duty. After overcoming this fear to some degree, though, he might've disliked transporting less than Pulaski.

Re: Who Hates Transporting the Most?

Barclay had a whole storyline dedicated to his mistrust of transporters, so I'll go with him . I have to agree with him also, because if transporter technology actually existed in the real world, I would never use. Ever.

Ambassador Odan, he was absolutely convinced that the transporter would kill him.

Not cannon, but the MU Will Decker was convinced that he was replaced by a duplicate every time he used the transporter.

Most of the good ones are already listed. Sonak, Odan, and I'll add Tom Riker.

I say Tom Riker should be on the top of the list. Transporters ruined his life.

There is also this entertaining bit from the beginning of TNG 2x19 "Manhunt," when Lwaxana Troi beams aboard the Enterprise:

Lwaxana: "Legs! Where are the legs?!"
Deanna: "Where they belong, Mother. Right under you."
Lwaxana: "Oh, I hate that. I will never completely trust this device, Jean-Luc."
