B is for "Beam Me Up, Scotty" The transporter is one of the most exciting concepts in Star Trek. It gives our interstellar heroes speed and the element of surprise without taking up too much "story" time. The way it works is a real sweetie. Take the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 transporters which are entrusted daily to separate life form energy patterns, (thats us) by de-materializing and re-materializing humans into a perfectly stable matter stream.
Without air, trapped starfleet crew members will suffer from boiling blood, radiation poisoning, loss of consciousness and asphyxiation. Sounds lovely doesn't it? Well, try imaging what it was like for Decker being gobbled up by the "Doomsday Machine." So its a good idea The Transporter Chief, is on the ball when energizing.
Here are some top tips from Scotty!
1. Target Scan and Co-ordinate lock. Necessary to avoid
beaming the Enterprise crew into solid rock formations or inhospitable environments.
2. Energize and De-materializing is a little tricky sometimes but
transporting really is the safest way to travel. The trick is
keeping the subjects molecular pattern image intact while the
transporter "coils" convert "you," hehe. Fingers crossed.
3. Its reassuring to know there are several safety error
checking systems to ensure you get from A to B. For instance
each transporter has four molecular imaging scanners which act independently of each other. The next
time you're on the Enterprise take it easy and relax with a
romulan ale: This might be your big chance to get away from it
The burning question has to be did Captain James T. Kirk ever
say "Beam me up, Scotty," on Star Trek the original series? He
did say, "Two to beam up," and other variations but the best remembered bit of trek dialogue is boldly energizing
the hearts of fans everywhere.
