In 2256, Starfleet installed top secret “displacement-activated spore hub drives” in two Crossfield-class starships — the U.S.S. Glenn and U.S.S. Discovery — which used an alien tardigrade as navigator. Although s-drives were ultimately abandoned as being too dangerous — and classified under penalty of treason — you can now adopt your very own (friendly) pet tardigrade here on Earth!
Tardigrades (also known as microscopic “water bears”) are available in size gigantic (15 inches), giant (5 inches), or keychain (2 inches).
