Mycelium spores harvested from the species Prototaxites stellaviatori were used in the experimental spore drive. The spores enabled access to the mycelial network. These spores might also be refered to as "mycelial spores", "fungal spores", or just spores. (DIS: "Context Is for Kings", "Point of Light") They were described as clean and renewable. (DIS: "An Obol for Charon")
Large amounts of these spores packed together might create hyper-gravitational and magnetic fields. The spores were attracted to a dark matter component in an Interstellar asteroid encountered by Discovery. (DIS: "What's Past Is Prologue", "Point of Light")
