Transporter (Star Trek, 2009)

The crew of the USS Enterprise has used the transporter in almost every version of Star Trek – it was orignally a work-around to avoid having to shoot expensive landing sequences with model shuttlecraft every time the Enterprise crew visited a planet. For the 2009 cinematic reboot, the venerable transporter effect was given a CGI spit and polish. Interestingly, the famous phrase "Beam me up, Scotty" was never uttered in the original Star Trek TV show or films.
