Energy was the measure of a physical system's ability to do work.

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

According to Montgomery Scott, transporters did not convert matter into energy and then reconstitute it, but instead analyzed the energy state of each subatomic particle and produced a Dirac jump to an equivalent state elsewhere. (TOS novel: Spock Must Die!) However, other sources described the transporters as using matter-energy conversion. (ST novel: Federation, SCE eBook: Out of the Cocoon)
