The transporter room is an area on a starship or outpost facility where transporter operations are conducted, typically housing a transporter pad and all necessary transporter technology. At one point during the Federation starship USS Enterprise's journeys the transporter room was termed the teleportion chamber.
History and specificsEdit
Many starships have a number of transporter rooms in addition to transporters in other locales such as cargo bays. The transporter rooms on the USS Defiant were sometimes referred to as the transporter bays.

In an alternate timeline where Montgomery Scott rescued James T.
