Why can't transporter technology be used as a weapon?
Why does the transporter technology not make "conventional" weapons (beam weapons and missiles) completely obsolete? You could use the transporter to teleport a bomb inside of an enemy ship. In the case they have some kind of protection, teleport it outside of the ship and detonate it there, it's still more effective than having it fly all the way there. The same with beam weapons: use the transporter technology to constantly teleport them around, instead of having them on board all at the same place? (Just as transporter technology would make a modern carrier battle group obsolete as you could teleport dozens of small PT boats in and out)
Does the transporter technology have some limitation which limits its use as described above?
