Normally mushroom spores repel insects, but Stamets' mushrooms attract the insects to eat them before they sporulate, and then sporulate and sprout right through the insects' bodies and kill them.

The character Lieutenant Commander Paul Stamets on the CBS series Star Trek: Discovery was named after the real Stamets. The fictional version is an astromycologist and the chief engineer of the USS Discovery, and is credited with discovering a mycelial network that powers an advanced spore drive.

Why is that an issue? Why did you need to point that out? Why wouldn't you pay for great content?

$5 rental too much for you?

Sheesh.
