Stellar matter or star material was a type of matter which came from stars.

In 2366, Paul Stubbs noted that over and over again, the intense gravitational pull of a little neutron star, inside an unnamed binary star system in the Kavis Alpha sector, sucked up star material from its neighboring red giant which built up on the surface until it exploded every 196 years like clockwork.

As "The Egg" probe was about to be launched from the USS Enterprise-D's shuttlebay, the ship began to shake and was headed straight into the path of stellar matter coming off of the red giant. With thirty seconds to impact, the inertia dampeners were unresponsive and unable to be reset. Geordi La Forge was able to reverse impulse engines, but the ship's momentum carried them into the path of the stellar matter. (TNG: "Evolution")
