Building on the transporter technology advancements first implemented on refit Constitution-class ships during the 2270's, the Victory transporter room features an updated pad with improved capabilities. Machinery for the transporter is still placed beneath the room, but thanks to improvements over the last few decades, it is now hidden under a single access panel at the center of the room, instead of having to occupy most of the floor space.
The room also features an adjacent staging area, accessible via a small doorway, where away teams can pick up mission specific equipment or gear if necessary. The transporter control console itself is enclosed on a raised alcove and shielded with a transparent aluminum panel. This protects the operator both from any potential hostile boarding party, and from any dangers of prolonged exposure to the updated transporter systems, which is an area of ongoing research.
