Protomatter in a sample container

Protomatter is a highly dangerous, unstable form of matter.

Its hazardous properties led to its being denounced by most 23rd century scientists.

It was among the most highly-valued commodities in a region of the Delta Quadrant, reputed to be "the best source of energy in the quadrant."

  • In 2370, protomatter was used in an attempt to reignite the star "Epsilon 119."
  • Also in that year, the Maquis incorporated protomatter in an implosion device designed to overload the impulse drive of the Cardassian freighter Bok'Nor.
