"I can appreciate what Author Simmons went through so in my novel [The Final Phase] you become 'triturated' in which - to oversimplify - your physical form is reformed into another state so that your body subsequently does not age at all on long space flights. However, being from that 70s era, I do like his idea as well as the possibility of developing any wormhole technology. As for the Star Trek transporter? I've always been partial to Dr. McCoy's misgivings myself."
