A site-to-site transport was a special type of transport in which an object or person was transported from one site directly to another, neither site being a transporter platform. A site-to-site transport was accomplished by first transferring the transporter's target from the site of origin to the pattern buffer of the transporter, in the same manner as the usual "beam in" procedure; instead of being routed to a transporter platform, however, the matter stream was diverted to a second site, in a similar procedure to a conventional "beam out". (TNG: "Brothers")

Notable uses

  • Wesley Crusher created what alleged to be a site-to-site transport program in 2368 to avoid being captured by the crew, who were under the influence of a Ktarian game. However, the program transported him to a transporter pad in Transporter Room 3. (TNG: "The Game")
  • In 2378, The Doctor beamed himself from another part of Voyager to sickbay after Commander Chakotay contacted him with his combadge and asked him to report there. (VOY: "Renaissance Man")
The term "site-to-site transport" originates from the Star Trek: The Next Generation fourth season episode "Brothers". In the commentary for the episode on the TNG Season 3 Blu-ray, Michael Okuda states that Rick Berman called Rick Sternbach and him, wanting a term for direct beaming. Either Sternbach or Okuda came up with the term "site-to-site transport," which stayed with the show.
