The transporter, sometimes called a "materializer,"[1] was a device that allowed near-instantaneous travel from one point to another.[2] On Stardate 1329.8, Doctor McCoy admitted that he "never trusted" the device.[3]

The cycle of the transporter aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 under Captain Pike took approximately 30 seconds from the beginning of the dematerialization process to the end of the rematerialization process at the destination,[2] a dramatic improvement over the original transporter created by Emory Erickson in the 22nd century. According to Erickson, the transporter took 90 seconds, during which time he claimed he could feel himself being dematerialized.[4]
