A series of lateral vector transporters aboard the USS Shenzhou, active in 2249…

…and dormant in 2256

A lateral vector transporter was a type of transporter technology once used by the Federation.

As of 2249, it was considered obsolete due to the massive amount of power it consumed. The Vulcans and Starfleet had phased out such transporters, though they were still present aboard some older vessels, such as the Walker-class USS Shenzhou and the Hiawatha-type USS Hiawatha.
