Sisko inspects a multidimensional transporter device

Captain Sisko with the multidimensional transporter

A multidimensional transporter device was a technology capable of reconfiguring transporters for use in beaming from one parallel universe to another. (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass")

It was first observed in use by Starfleet in 2371, when Miles O'Brien used it to kidnap Commander Benjamin Sisko, so that Sisko could take the place of his counterpart, who had recently died. (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass")

The next year, Jennifer Sisko used a multidimensional transporter to visit Sisko and his son, Jake. Jennifer subsequently took Jake to the parallel universe, leaving a multidimensional transporter behind, as an invitation for Captain Sisko to follow them. Although Sisko attempted to take Major Kira and Chief O'Brien with him, he found that the device was only programmed to allow him to make the transition. While there, he assisted the Terran rebels, who were fighting against the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, to complete construction on the ISS Defiant. (DS9: "Shattered Mirror")

In 2374, Bareil Antos used a multidimensional transporter to make the transition, during an attempt to steal an orb with Intendant Kira Nerys. Major Kira was eventually able to convince Bareil to betray her counterpart, and abandon the plot to steal the orb. (DS9: "Resurrection")

In 2375, Rom left a PADD with the schematics for the multidimensional transporter, which Chief O'Brien had given him to study, out at his mother's house on Ferenginar, where Grand Nagus Zek found it. Stealing it, Zek traveled to the parallel universe in an attempt to find new financial opportunities, but was subsequently captured by the Alliance. Regent Worf held Zek hostage, promising to release him to Quark and Rom in exchange for a cloaking device, which did not exist in the parallel universe. Using another transporter device, Ezri Tigan took the two Ferengi, along with the cloaking device, to the parallel universe, where they were able to free Zek. (DS9: "The Emperor's New Cloak")
