Your mention of The Cloudminders reminded me of the continued tradition of political leaders portrayed as hinderences to Kirk and a source of irritation! Well, I knew I probably would miss a few of the people who operated the transporter! I had O'Neil in mind when crafting the question, yet I forgot to add him to the list! So there's another person on the list to make it 13 I see as persons at the controls of the transporter.I must have had a stroke or memory lapse as I cannot recall McCoy activating the transporter! I'm going to have to look for this one. He'd make it 14 people who have activated the transporter. It would seem ironic for McCoy to actually activate the transporter considering he hates it so! One point for sure for Lee for the O'Neil answer and a probable 2 for the McCoy example.
