No, i dont think so...

because to our knowledge we can clone a full growen human...we have to start from scratch...a Baby's mind cannot hold that kind of informations, which means the thoughts and memories and such (aka mind...i use that term for that meaning) would have to be stored until a later time!!!

correct me if I am wrong!

zinc, if you don't know the position and speed of the atoms that make up your body when your transported, then how can you know how to reconstruct it accurately?

The position is worked out as opposed to being measured. The kinetic energy of the atoms could be worked out by the magnitude of the wave released when the atom is fissioned- at higher kinetic energies the energy released would be minutely higher than at low kinetic energies. By measuring lots of different atoms in a lab at different temperatures and studying the changes when they are fissioned it would be simple enough to get their Kinetic Energy.

The velocity of the atoms would be harder to get (I suppose that's what you meant when you said speed) as a direction is needed. This probably wouldn't have anything to do with the wave released, although it might. I really don't know but I'm sure someone knows how to read the velocity of an atom, even if it means destroying it in the process.

Just posting again to ask if anyone has any idea how the replicators and transporters are supposed to work in Star Trek? I really haven't got a clue about them.

Transporters work by scanning the occupant and saving their pattern into a buffer, then converting all the occupant's matter into energy. Then this enrgy is diverted through the targetting scanners to a new location, where it is then converted back into matter using the original pattern stored in the pattern buffer.

Replicators work in a similar way by turning stored energy into new matter, using patterns already entered into the computer records.
As far as I am aware, they can only create fairly basic patterns (which is why they aren't used to create armies of duplicate humans).


That's how they're supposed to work in Star Trek.

And yet somehow in Trek transporters you are still whole... But yet torn apart!

When you turn matter into energy that's like making a body turn into soil from the ground. Samething. There is no such thing as 'new' matter.

YEAH AND us Aussies transported the matter !!!!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder we were reluctant to join the Federation
