The multispatial probe was an advanced probe designed by Lieutenant Commander Tuvok of the USS Voyager in 2375. It was equipped with unimatrix shielding, also designed by Tuvok.

On the probe's first flight, a Malon export vessel, eleventh gradient attempted to steal it so they could locate suitable planets as dumping grounds for antimatter waste. To stop them, the crew of Voyager sent the probe into the atmosphere of a class 6 gas giant. The probe was later retrieved by the newly-constructed Delta Flyer, ahead of a competing salvage team sent by Malon Controller Vrelk. (VOY: "Extreme Risk")

Later in 2375, the crew of Voyager used the multispatial probe to explore a pocket of subspace beyond a subspace sinkhole, where a shuttlecraft carrying Tuvok, Tom Paris and The Doctor had crashed. The probe subsequently served as a transporter relay, allowing them to be rescued. (VOY: "Gravity")

When Voyager and the bounty hunter race known as the Hazari began to think of plans to defeat a smart group known as the Think Tank, Tom Paris suggested they use the probe to scout subspace, where the group's ship was known to hide. However, B'Elanna Torres dismissed it, due to the supposition that it would take weeks to scout the area. (VOY: "Think Tank")

In 2376, B'Elanna Torres piloted a shuttle on a solo mission to retrieve the multispatial probe, after it entered an ion storm. (VOY: "Barge of the Dead")

In VOY: "Blink of an Eye", the CGI model of the multispatial probe was also used to represent a standard class 5 probe.
"Brief Candle", a short story in the Distant Shores anthology, reveals that the probe was created from the remains of One, explaining why the crew always went to great lengths to recover it as it was literally irreplaceable. The probe is subsequently lost in the same story when an attempt to use it to scan a Voth transwarp drive nearly causes a rift in subspace.
