A blackout mine was a type of mine that interfered with navigational sensors, causing them to give false readings. Blackout mines of non-Federation origin were found in the minefield surrounding Section 31 Headquarters. In 2257, they affected USS Discovery when it attempted to pass through the field, forcing helmsman Keyla Detmer to fly blind. (DIS: "Project Daedalus")
