Which is close, but not the same thing. In addition to it being in the 24th century, I take it the technology wasn't established at the time during the tenure of the Enterprise-D. But at the same time, Scotty [alternate] wasn't totally sure if it could work. I mean, it's not like he ever tried it before. Or at least, not that we know of.

Here's information on transwarp beaming on Memory Alpha: http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Transwarp_beaming
