    Is right next to Grand Coulee Dam a good place for three arcologies? It's in the middle of nowhere.

    Is Akiva okay?
    There are 2 Andorians and a new red/white alien at SFHQ.
    How do the walk-through transporters know where you wanna go?

    Yes, TNG LCARS sound! But why is tea now made in fragments by Barclay's neural scan interface? XD

    They're automated megafarms, according to the 2009 movie art book. Although I guess they could be arcologies too.

    I assume by telling the walk in part of the transporter.

    A very short new 'Picard' promo just dropped:



    The dream Picard and the Romulan co-workers must be
    his dream of playing poker with Data in the midst of the Mars attack
    which was seen in the clip that came out earlier today.

    It his defence it is a dead language :whistle:

    WAIT! WHAT? There is a six month rule, cool.

    I assume the Voyager info in spoiler tags was a joke?
    Not in my timeline she didn't
    #mandelaeffect :shifty:
    Proof that Picard has lost his mind in the last twenty years = he orders decaf!!!!!
    I once met a lady at train station in Torquey in the southwest of England. She wanted to go Turkey on holiday but the person who sold her the ticket could not understand her accent.

    I suppose that one could assume that after a couple of times of mumbling ones stated destination as being Paris, France and ending up in Paraguay...

    One would learn to enunciate ones destination loudly and much clearer rather quickly.

    :lol:

    I imagined that those were dedicated destination "commuter" transporters.

    • Could be those transporters only go to one location, a larger transporter hub site from which you can then transport to your final destination. Perhaps for certain places (like Starfleet HQ) you can't just transport in without some sort of pre-screening.
    • Another possibility might be an officer taps their comm badge before walking in and says "Computer, set transport location to XYZ". Civilians would use whatever personal communicator device they have to do the same. It would be the 24th century equivalent of using your phone to tap and pay when going into a subway station.

    I find that level of casual transporter technology frightening. What happens if you step through right as there's a power spike/failure; or the AI handling the system glitches? I could see public transporters operated BY living beings (like using an airport/bus terminal in present day); but autonomous AI controlled transporter 'portals' - no thanks.

    Damn. This is definitely not the Jean Luc we're accustomed to is it?

    So let’s get it straight. It’s not the question of whether the transporter kills you every time you transport that bothers you. It’s whether it’s manned or autonomous? Name one good transporter chief outside of O’Brian... I’ll take my chances with fully automated system.
    Full disclosure: it’s a tv show, hence my opinion. You’ll never catch me in a Tesla with it’s auto driving mode.

    I love my Tesla's autopilot! Looking forward to the fully self-driving capability.

    At first I was a little annoyed at how "seamless" those Transporters were. No standing still. No inputting of destinations.

    But thinking on it, being planet based they could lead to a Transporter Hub, like a train station. And there could be fixed/wired connections between those gates, and various Hubs - so no worry about moving targets, or obstructions.

    So that could explain the ease of those using them.
