I would take it, Bud, that you're suggesting that the FORBIDDEN PLANET version of the DC stations were precursors for STAR TREK transporters.

Interesting.

Way back in 1980 BANTAM BOOKS published a package called STAR TREK MAPS.





Included in the package was a 32 page booklet listing all the known star systems and planets known to the FEDERATION since its' inception. In it was listed Altairs' fourth planet and the former existance of the Krell was mentioned. So perhaps the idea is not so far fetched as it may appear. The civilization the C-57d found on Altair IV was acknowledged as part of the ST canon.



Star Trek Maps is a reference work demonstrating the stellar cartography and navigation system featured on the Star Trek television series, written from an in-universe perspective.
It was published by Bantam Books in August 1980, and licensed by Paramount Pictures.

The box set included four four-color wall maps, and an instructional booklet from the "Technical Publications Section" of Starfleet Command Introduction to Navigation (booklet): Labelled with an in-universe document number: TM:3001499-03, as published by the Technical Publications Section of Starfleet Command.

The text includes historical background, explanations of warp travel, navigation within the Federation, a briefing on course calculations, which include vector calculus, a table of corrections for warp speed designations.

Another link between FORBIDDEN PLANET and STAR TREK is the ST episode REQUIEM FOR METHUSALAH.

According to fantasy and science fiction scholar Ace G. Pilkington, Requiem for Methuselah is a Star Trek adaptation of the film Forbidden Planet (1956).

Actress Anne Francis reported that Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, had talked to her about lifting some ideas from Forbidden Planet.

Actor Leslie Nielsen noted the similarities between Forbidden Planet and Star Trek, suggesting that the film served as a pilot for the television series.

Ruth Morse, a Shakespearean scholar, has written on the influence of The Tempest on Forbidden Planet and Requiem for Methuselah.

Flint, the powerful recluse, seems to be based on Prospero and Methuselah. Rayna appears to be Flint's daughter and is based on Miranda, Prospero's daughter.

These are the ST versions of Morbius and Altaria...Shakespeare's Prospero and Miranda.



The twist here is that "Rayna-Miranda" (as Morse calls her) is an android, not Flint's daughter. Flint hopes that the female android will fall in love with him. Flint offers her knowledge and intellectual stimulation but Rayna falls for the "irresistible" James T. Kirk.

The female android faces new and (to her) unfamiliar emotions, having to choose between two men. The pressure causes her to short-circuit into self-destruction, her version of death.

So the concept of the DC stations relation to STAR TREK's transporter/replicators may be valid.

And I would know that because.....



I'm officialy Starfleet!
