Do you know how much data there is involved in trransporting a hman beiing??? Let me tell you, it'* a LOT!! We're talking Terrabytes, if not more. And the least little bit of data loss, and you're no longer transporting a person....

And Capt Pike was only expected to answer yes or know. Instellar Fedaration Courts are really wierd. I blame the Vulcans and all their logic. If you can only say yes or no, that'* how they have to question you....







Ya think I read and/or watched too much Star Trek as a kid???

Transporters don't work on shields, either. Only solid objects. Shields are just energy.

so there!!!

LOL.

Ok, I'm content.

But then I'd just use my phaser to bring their shields to 0%, and then beam over an M-80, and then transport the enemy ship into a starbucks or something.

OH! One other question.

One time they had all these tribbles, and at the end, everyone almost got pissed cause they thought scotty beamed them into space. But then they were pleasently surprised to find that he hadn't done anything THAT inhumane... oh no... instead he transported them onto the klingon ship (which, by your logic, was apparently flying around with no shields, which would seem like a bad thing to me). But that aside, explain to me how beaming cute little tribbles into the home of the arch enemy of tribbles is somehow better than beaming them out into space? I mean, I'm pretty sure they either grinded em up into tribble burger, played "how long wil a tribble burn?" with them, or perhaps beamed them out into space themselves.

This one I DEFINALTELY need an answer on.

By the 23rd Century, PETA finally gave up and went away because food was being replicated, thereby negating the need to kill animals. They moved on to "Save the Air", as since discovering Warp Travel, so much air was being used to keep starship crews alive, they felt there wasn't enough left for Earth (which was total crap, because all starships have Botanics labs, air purify and, duh, replicators!!) So, while it may seem cruel and unusual to us backwards thinking citizens of the 20th and 21st centuries, the folks on Star Trek weren't being brainwashed into believe all animals have rights. Even the small, furry, overpopulating types.

Plus, it'* a little know fact that Klingons only acted like the Asshats of the Galaxy when other races were looking. They had a few decorated rooms on their ships to intimidate visitors. But the rest of the ship was painted in relaxing pastels with fruit bars, latte and smoothie replicators, and lots of frilly pillows. The tribbles fit the decor perfectly.

AH.

I always thought there was a reason why they were called klingons. Now I know.
