Live Long and Prosper Hello all; I'm new to this community and this is my first post in the forums'
I was wondering if some of you would take the time to give me a few reasons why the crew of a starship would not be able to use the transporter, and have to resort to using a shuttle craft instead.
Thanks much

Radiation
Being Reg Barclay

I'm sure a little more digging will bring more reasons Smile
