Defensive [[shields]] block transporter function, but once an enemy's shields have been dropped with weapon fire, [[boarding]] parties routinely transport themselves onto enemy starships, indicating that transporting alert, unwilling opponents away from their ship would be so much more difficult as to not be worth attempting. This tactical behavior may indicate that [[transport inhibitor]] technology is built into starships: routine use of transporters to rescue personnel from damaged starships indicates that the inhibitor effect is not inherent to a ship's structure.
