Also called Matter Plasma. It refers to phenomenon, while Matter-Plasma refers to the stuff inside of it, mostly.
When matter is being transporteed via sub-space fields and currents, it takes on an energy like state, as particles begin to behave like waves. It is reconstructed via its 'frequency', the energy field from the atomic moleculor magnetic fields, connecting the atoms and hold them together. Without the field, the matter stream will dissolve into energy.
Within a matter stream a Conscious mind can exist.
- Teleporters: When an object is transported, it is done so via a Matter Stream.
- Replicators: Matter-Plasma is stored and reassambled by a prearranged and generated frequency.
