main transporter room
the main transporter room is always ready for action
The Main Transporter room of a Galaxy class starship is an important thoroughfare - the point which away teams are dispatched to important missions, and the first area of the ship usually seen by visiting dignitaries
There are four virtually identical transporter rooms located around the core of the Enterprise-D on deck 6; each one forms a mirror image of its adjacent room, and each contains a six person transporter pad. In most situations, fewer than six individuals will be transported on or off the ship simultaneously; this makes one of the four transported rooms far busier than the others. This is the room located closer to the front of the ship, to the left of the central core. It is designated the Main Transporter Room.
The Main Transporter Room is kept at the ready to transport passengers and crew on or off the ship. Away teams can be beamed from the ship into important situations instantaneously, while passengers and guests arriving aboard Enterprise can go from the transporter room directly to the turbolift which will then deliver them to their required destination aywhere on the ship. A turbolift stop is located in the corridor directly outside each transporter room; the main transporter room is connected directly to the main bridge and other major areas of the ship

The coordinates to which the travelers are to be sent are programmed in by the Transported Cheif. This job holds a great deal of responsibility, as the smallest mistake could cost lives.
Transport chambers follow a standard design, extending upwards from a circular platform. The area is lit at the back and from the top.
The pad on the floor of the transporter is clearly divided into six sections. This is the maximum number of people to beam out simultaneously.
To the right of the transporter chamber lies a storage locker area. Access panels to various systems are also located here.
