    Instead of Matter being destroyed and re-created; what about transporting through a Warp Bubble? I will dumb it down for others that wish to learn........Bubble Theory: Can you transport via a Warp Bubble as opposed to a Destroy and Recreate Premise?

    If you are asking about actual physics, no. If you are asking about story magic then you can do anything you want but it would be better to call it a wormhole if you want to give some simulation of actual physics.

    There's always the Elway Theorem, mentioned in the episode The High Ground. The dimensional shift described in the story moves people without the Transporter, albeit at the cost of damaged DNA.
