Spore Drive

3 posts in this topic

Anyone else fascinated by the spore drive technology on Discovery?

Did you know Stamets, the character in Discovery who discover-invents the tech is based on a real Mycologist named Paul Stamets? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Stamets 

and check this out... https://www.ted.com/talks/paul_stamets_on_6_ways_mushrooms_can_save_the_world

--------------------------------

 

Clearly something huge will eventually go down on Discovery which sweeps this tech under the rug one way or another, (Section 31? / DTI? / the Mycelium network gets destroyed?) but I am loving every minute of this out of this world sci-fi concept.

I agree that this is the kind of interesting idea that one would expect from a Star Trek series, and it is one of the reasons I am still hanging in with the series. I agree that something has to happen to spore drive, because there is no mention of it in any other Star Trek. What is going to happen to Stammets?

Some of the best stories and subplots showing the decency and risk-taking of the main characters has centered around the spore drive. Also the worst story (Mudd).

The episodes I have rewatched have involved some aspect of the this drive.
