"Traveling with" time... what we all do on a constant basis... is not the same as being "translated through" time, that is, moving independently of it in either direction. And "intact" is a relative term: At every moment, we are gaining and shedding atoms and being hulled by exotic particles, changing our state by the femtosecond, so movement with time constantly changes us.

Penforhire... you're forgiven for being "curious and argumentative." Even the data-through-wormhole theory has a lot of holes in it... big, big holes, mostly involving the nigh-infinite amounts of energy required to control such a process, which is IMO what makes it a Soft SF element.
