Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 195: It's A Death Machine
The Transporter.

The transporter is at the same time one of the most remarkable and terrifying pieces of technology featured in Star Trek. It dissembles its subjects at a molecular level, converts their matter into energy, then reassembles as matter at their new location. Would you be willing to go through the process?

In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore discuss if they themselves would be willing to use a transporter, whether or not it is a death machine, and its many uses that go beyond what was intended by Starfleet engineers.
