A new Star Trek production is always a big thing - and like many other new tv series, its production is shrouded in secrecy. When CurTec was asked to supply 15 liter UV safe Wide Neck Drums to CBS, we were naturally curious to find out their purpose. We were only told they would be used as props on the 50th anniversary production of a new Star Trek series.

Finally, last night, I discovered our drums, carefully installed aboard the USS Discovery, where they are used to contain mycelium spores – biological particles that enable instantaneous individual transportation across the galaxy. 90 light years in 1.3 seconds… New technology contained by CurTec.
