* MisappliedPhlebotinum: A device that can convert matter into energy would still be a tremendous breakthrough, even if it didn't have the capacity to reform it. Even if you couldn't build a transporter, the ability to convert useless matter like sand into energy would be a solid alternative energy source, since a major part of the plot involved a something called a "storage cell". And even if the process took more energy to produce than it made, you could still use to get rid of hazardous waste, making toxic waste dumps a thing of the past.
* MonsterMisogyny: Averted with Sheila and Dr Steiner. Despite being the one who bungled the operation (Sheila tried to turn off the machine in mid-teleport), Dr. Steiner only kidnaps her to learn about the blackmailing plot, and dosen't hold any ill will towards her because [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe she helped him with the experiment]]. She's the only character that he dosen't immediately try to kill, and only puts her in danger when he leaves the apartment by setting it on fire with his electric touch, but it appears that he did that without thinking in his rush to leave.
