Transporter double


Transporter double

  1. 1. A transporter error has beamed you to another ship… while at the same time leaving you in place. You are asked back into the transporter to end the cycle, therefore eliminating your copy of yourself. What would you do?

    • Accept your fate and step into the transporter so it can complete the cycle.
    • Refuse. Have the other copy step into a transporter and be eliminated. You are the original!
    • Have the two of you lead two separate lives from then on. But in that case… who keeps your regular life?
    • Have the transporter chief join the two patterns together into a single person, not knowing whether it would work or, if it did, how the memories of those split moments would affect you.
    • Any other option. As always, tell us in the forums!

As standard for your duties, you walk into the transporter pad to transport to a nearby ship, for transfer. After a final look back, you sigh and nod to the transporter chief and feel the familiar blue haze engulf you. An instant later the blue shimmer disappears and you stand there, in the very same transporter room, looking at the very same, albeit surprised, transporrter chief.

“Sorry, sir.” she says, as he starts checking the computer for an explanation. She contacts your destination ship, but there seems to be a problem. Apparently, you are already there. For some reason, as your pattern was transmitted, the computer failed to eliminate your copy from this ship. The transporter chief doubts. Two armed security officers enter the room.

“Sorry, but we would need you to step back into the transporter so it can complete its cycle. “

This is a new entry in our Morals of Trek category. This time, the scenario can be a bit familiar since Commander Riker lived something similar. But not exactly the same since, where the two Rikers had years to lead separate lives, you barely had a few seconds. Tell us what you would do!

Well I'm me, so I would definitely be telling the chief to get that other version to get back in the buffer. After all, that's the imposter, right?
