Suppose for a moment if you will, that within the Trek universe, transporters were never invented for use with living beings (maybe cargo, and replicators would be fine) due to that pesky old Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle that no-one ever managed to devise some kind of compensator to work around. Ignoring the real-world concerns of how it might change the franchise, or the various storylines that would be altered/impossible, etc, how does everyone imagine this would impact Starship (and I guess even Shuttlecraft!) design? Personally I suspect that many vessel classes might survive with little to no tampering - the Galaxy and Miranda classes seem like they have sufficient shuttlebay facilities already, but maybe the Constitution would end up needing a secondary bay up on the primary hull... Thoughts anyone?
