Spoilers ahead for the newest ST:Discovery episode!
In DIS: What's Past is Prologue we see that
Michael Burnham (prime universe)
gets teleported from
ISS Charon to USS Discovery
Philippa Georgiou (mirror universe).
Originally, the ship had begun transporting only the first person mentioned, however, after the process begun, the first person grabbed the second one and both of them were transported off the ship. When these two people rematerialized onboard the target ship, they appeared on separate transporter pads.
This would be perfectly normal and expected behaviour of the transporter if the ship simply initiated the transport of two people. However, in this case the transporter only intended to teleport one person.
Question: Is this behaviour for the transporter inconsistent throughout the Star Trek and were there any situations where two-or-more-people transport resulted in rematerializing on the same pad?
