    Default Why we will NEVER get a Trek/Asgard transporter even if it is possible

    The US government would NEVER allow it to be marketed. Why? It would put the automobile, airline, and hotel industries and all supporting industries out of business.

    Case closed. :'(

    Those of us who are not controlled the US government will do our best not to show off with our fancy transporters. Ok, maybe a little showing off.

    By that logic the US should have never allowed the airline industry to flourish as it destroyed the train industry

    There are people who believe that there already is technology out there that could replace gas and oil for engines overnight, but it is being kept out of production because of lobbyists to OPEC and other entities. I am not one of these people, but if it is happening, I could see it also happening for the transporters.

    Actually it may change some business, but it will create others. The thing about the transporter is that it's also a copier.

    However, wars will be fought over it if there is only one in existence.

    Plus, with it being a copier it will have a huge effect on money based economies. Because if rare metals and precious minerals can be copied, they lose their value.

    You will never take me alive.

    PG ducks away from these strange oppressors and runs into the woods to regroup and think of a plan. Who were these Mods and what was this Cantina? He is overwhelmed by the thought that his life may have become much more complicated.

    Not much of a war when the guy with a transporter can make a bomb appear on your doorstep or beam the enemies into space.

    Not to mention it could be used as a weapon itself. Problems with an enemy, but cant get a plane there to bomb them? No problem, just beam a nuke to their location.

    Phinguyver, under Cantina regulations and whatever laws we made up and have forgotten, you hereby have no rights, you are our property to do with as we will. It will be fun......for us. Your thread is now ours and will be used as a staging ground for our awesome drunken assaults on the land of Mod, or a place to store booze.

    I suggest you let me join this Cantina movement. I can probably out drink most of you.

    If a lizard is doing push ups it's a warning to back off!

    If a snake is coiled near the lizard, the lizard is about to be dinner.
