Okay, maybe the actual pad area is a bit comparable...now what about all the little "cubicles" formed by the glass panels that extend outward from the chamber area...and make it overall larger...?

I suppose so, though I don't know why you'd constantly need to reinvent this technology that often, at least in terms of style points as seen on-screen.

The swirling effect is working for me.

Transporter effect really makes no difference to me...as long as the transporter gets the characters from point A to point B and they don't turn into amoebas in the process...

I prefer a "sparkling" effect as it implies matter being broken down and converted to energy and vice versa, but it's not something high on the crab list.

It's difficult to determine size from photos. Which bridge is bigger?

Yeah great.. more glass, and it's glass cause I think it shatters in the trailer, metal don't shatter... like someone else said...

I'd sure hate like hell to be the maid on that ship... "Well they better clean themselves cause I don't do windows!"

I bet those glass panels spin inwards when someone steps on the pad!

Perhaps they want to beam things up which are larger than Kiera Knightly sucking her stomach in. I want to beam up a car or a piano or a big cargo container. Oh we can't - we made the transporter pad too small. Anyway, who decides what's pointless in a fictional world?

P.S. It does't look that big to me. But then I'm not scouring every image for stuff to criticise.

I like the transporter room, interesting look. Kind of industrial. Maybe that rumor about the further you go into the ship, the more industrial it looks is true.

It is possible the glass panels in the background may make the design a little busy, but hard to tell from this one pic, but I like. Also the transporter effect is nice. Not quite like any other transporter effect used before. They've changed it alot for sure, but many times it's just a variation on the one before. This seems new.


BTW, yeah, I also think the lens is making the transporter room look larger than it is. The low angle can do that as well.

I think they're bending the swirl effect around individual limbs like legs and arms. Quite cheeky but we can do that sort of thing now and it would be rude not to!
